Eleventh King of Syria, 150-145 B.C. His struggle for the throne, his promises to Jonathan, his pro-Jewish policy may be learned from 1 Maccabees 10:1-89. He was vanquished by his father-in-law, Ptolemy Philometor of Egypt, and Syria thus passed into the hands of Demetrius II (1 Maccabees 11:1-19).
