This dramatic event, counted as Seleucus' first regal year, was continued as the Seleucid Era, the first continuous count of time in world chronology, soon to inspire the similar Arsacid Era of Parthia. There is also the residual uncertainty about Hellenistic dating.
There is also the residual uncertainty about Hellenistic dating. Bickerman, for instance, positively asserted that Seleucus reconquered Babylon "in August of " [Chronology of the Ancient World, Cornell University Press,p.
Seleucus] was given a thousand men by Ptolemy and set out from Palestine to Babylonia" [Dividing the Spoils, Oxford,p. While we may have more confidence in up-to-date scholarship, sometimes older analyses are later vindicated.
As recounted aboveSeleucus had to fend off two major efforts against him to recover Babylon for Antigonus Monophthalmos. However, Seleucus leaves India to the growing power of the Mauryasand was compensated with war elephants that he then began to breed himself. Having defeated and killed Antigonus and LysimachusSeleucus was about to add Thrace to his kingdom when, stepping out of the boat in Europe, he was assassinated by Ptolemy Ceraunus, whom he had taken in as a refugee from his father, Ptolemy I.
The capital of the kingdom, Seleucia, founded on the Tigris, began to replace Babylon as the metropolitan city of the region, but it did not achieve the historical significance and permanence of Alexandria in Egypt. A more permanent city of historical importance and fame would be Antioch in Syria now in Turkey.
While Seleucid authority was never fully established over several kingdoms in Anatolia, like Armenia and Pontusmore distant areas, like Parthia and Bactriabegan to drift away. Antiochus III stopped this process and began to reverse it, marching to India and wresting Palestine from the Ptolemies, but then had the misfortune to become the first Seleucid to clash with Rome.
His defeat in began a steep decline for the kingdom. Bythe Seleucids would be confined to Syria. Their last 60 years would be consumed with pointless dynastic conflict and fragmentation, and 14 years of Armenian occupation.
Then Rome would pick up the pieces. Pompey "settles the East" in 63 BC with the annexation of the remaining Seleucid lands and the reduction of other local states, like Judaeato Roman clients. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon Neo- 3. The Statue of Zeus at Olympia Greek 4.

The last two Wonders were then actual products of the Hellenistic Age, in the 3th century. The Colossus of Rhodes was constructed by a surviving Greek city state, to celebrate its delivery from the siege of Demetrius Poliorcetes in ; but then the Pharos Lighthouse was one of the supreme symbols of Hellenistic Monarchy, built by Ptolemy I and II in the first and greatest city of Alexander, marking its location, day and light, on the edge of the otherwise flat and undistinguished Delta of Egypt.
The Colossus of Rhodes did not survive long as constructed. It fell in an earthquake in BC.Hellenistic Monarchs down to the Roman Empire. The Hellenistic Age suffers from some of the same disabilities as Late Antiquity, i.e. it doesn't measure up to the brilliance of the Golden Age of Greece and of late Republican and early Imperial Rome.
