Alexander's Successors

After his death there was rivalry among his generals for control, resulting in a time of confusion and warfare. Eventually, Ptolemy secured Egypt, Cyrene, Cyprus, and the Mediterranean coastlands, and Ptolemaic dominion initially seems to have extended to Lycia, Ionia, and the Aegean. The bulk of Asia Minor was held by Antigonus, Lysmachus controlled Thrace, Cassander held Macedonia and Greece, and Seleucus secured Babylonia. After Antigonus was defeated at Ipsus (301), Seleucus gained control of Syria and was given the area which included Judah (Coele‐Syria), but in fact Ptolemy had secured control of Coele‐Syria and Phoenicia. Later Seleucus gained Asia Minor, and established his capital at Antioch.
