Abstract / Description of output

Written soon after the battle of Panium, the letter of Antiochus III to Ptolemy son of Thraseas is a central piece of evidence in any reconstruction of the Ptolemaic-Seleucid transition in the Southern Levant. Its preservation in Josephus' Antiquities raises questions of transmission and authenticity that are here discussed in some detail.
