Seleukid Kingdom, Antiochus V Eupator, 164 - 162 B.C.
|Seleucid| |Kingdom|, |Seleukid| |Kingdom,| |Antiochus| |V| |Eupator,| |164| |-| |162| |B.C.|, Antiochus V was just nine years old when crowned. The kingdom was ruled by his regent Lysias. In 163 or early 162 B.C., the Roman legate Gnaeus Octavius enforced the Treaty of Apamea by burning the Seleukid fleet and killing the army's war elephants (private citizens assassinated him for this outrage). Soon after, Ptolemaeus, the satrap of Commagene, declared independence. Only two years after becoming king, his uncle Demetrius escaped captivity, claimed the throne and had Antiochos V and his regent executed.
