Encyclopedia > Antiochus VII Sidetes

Antiochus VII Eumenes, nick-named Sidetes (from Sidon), reigned from 138129 BC over the Seleucid Empire. He was the last Seleucid king of any stature. The brother of Demetrius II, Antiochus was elevated after Demetrius' capture by the Parthians. Antiochus married Cleopatra Thea, who was the wife of Demetrius. Their offspring was Antiochus IX, thus both half-brother and cousin of Seleucus V and Antiochus VIII. Sidetes defeated the usurper Tryphon and laid siege to Jerusalem. According to legend the Hasmonean king John Hyrcanus bought Antiochus off by digging up the treasures of King Solomon's grave. Sidetes then attacked the Parthians and briefly took back Mesopotamia before being ambushed and killed by Phraates II. His brother Demetrius II was by then released, but the Seleucid Empire was now restricted to Syria.
