037: Antigonid Macedon - Gonatas & the Macedonian Anarchy The Hellenistic Age Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Antigonus II Gonatas, son and grandson of Demetrius I Poliorcetes and Antigonus I Monopthalmus, was not of the same military mold as his forebears, traditionally preferring the company of philosophers over the camp. However, it would be left to him to achieve the family dream of taking the throne of Macedon, all the while dealing with the likes of Celtic barbarians, cannibalistic tyrants, and the warrior-king Pyrrhus of Epirus, as he sought to restore order to Macedon after nearly 25 years of anarchy and chaos.
