    068: The Second Punic War - Over the Mountains

    068: The Second Punic War - Over the Mountains

    With the destruction of the Celtiberian city of Saguntum in 219, much of the Mediterranean world was plunged into a state of warfare for nearly two decades, as the Roman Republic would once again battle Carthage for dominance, and face their greatest foe to date: Hannibal Barca, son of Hamilcar. To the surprise and horror of the Senate, Hannibal would audaciously plan and execute a crossing of the Alps and bring the war to Italy, slaughtering the Roman armies thrown at him at the Trebia River and Lake Trasimene in 218/217.

    065: Antigonid Macedon - The Last March of the Spartans

    065: Antigonid Macedon - The Last March of the Spartans

    Despite the failure of Agis IV to reform a weakened Sparta, a more politically astute (and ruthless) successor could be found in the rival Agiad house, Cleomenes III. Under his reign, Sparta would be restored to a level of power capable enough to bring the Achaean League to its knees during the Cleomenean War (228-222). In a moment of crisis, Aratus of Sicyon would follow the maxim of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", and turn to a most hatred rival: Macedonia, led by the standing regent Antigonus III Doson.

    064: Antigonid Macedon - Of Revolutions and Reforms

    064: Antigonid Macedon - Of Revolutions and Reforms

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and the 240s and 230s saw several shakeups in the political order of Greece. Macedonia under Demetrius II Aetolicus struggled to deal with an onslaught of Greek Leagues, Illyrian tribes, and the premature death of a monarch. Meanwhile, the long-since impotent Sparta sees a potential rejuvenation through the efforts of the young King Agis IV, who sought to return Lacedaemonia to her ancestral ways after years of growing economic inequality and depleting military power.

    062: Ptolemaic Egypt - Egyptians in a Greek Land

    062: Ptolemaic Egypt - Egyptians in a Greek Land

    The conquest of Egypt by Alexander and establishment of the Ptolemaic dynasty differed from previous foreign invaders like the Hyksos or the Persians. While the Ptolemies would very much present themselves as traditional pharaohs, they would bring thousands of Greek immigrants, founded poleis, and imported Greek culture en masse. For the indigenous Egyptians, Ptolemaic rule required them to live with two "faces": those like Manetho, an Egyptian priest of Amun-Ra who composed an influential history of Egypt in Greek known as the "Aegyptiaca", would continue to work under the new regime. Others were able to exploit "Hellenization" as a means of advancement, seen in the archives of the mixed Greco-Egyptian military family of Dryton and Senmonthis-Apollonia, revealing the complexities of ethnic and cultural identity. But we also can see the tensions between the Greek and Egyptian communities, which could explode in bouts of violence and rebellion. In this episode we look to see how the Egyptians responded to the arrival of a new political, social, and cultural elite.

    Interview: On Antigonus II Gonatas w/ Robin Waterfield

    Interview: On Antigonus II Gonatas w/ Robin Waterfield

    After facing decades of civil wars and invasions following the death of Alexander, peace was restored in Macedonia by the capable Antigonid king Antigonus II 'Gonatas', who strengthened the kingdom's hegemony over the Greek Peninsula in a reign that lasted an impressive 40 years. Despite this, we know very little about the man and his exploits. Author and independent scholar Robin Waterfield ("Dividing the Spoils", "Taken at the Flood") joins the show to discuss his new book "The Making of a King: Antigonus Gonatas of Macedon and the Greeks", which seeks to chronicle the life of Antigonus and provide a guide through the often-hazy period of the 3rd century BC.

    Interview: On the Army of Ptolemaic Egypt w/ Dr. Paul Johstono

    Interview: On the Army of Ptolemaic Egypt w/ Dr. Paul Johstono

    Though the longest-lived and most wealthy of the Hellenistic "Big 3", the Ptolemaic rulers in Egypt have never really held the distinction as a major military player in the violent struggles of the Hellenistic period, instead often seen as decadent and lazy as per the writings of those like Polybius. Dr. Paul Johstono joins us to discuss his new book “The Army of Ptolemaic Egypt, 323-204 BC: An Institutional and Operational History”, which seeks to challenge this claim and reassert the role of the Ptolemaic kingdom as a significant military force in the Mediterranean, capable of meeting the demands of maintaining a large land and sea empire amidst powerful rivals and often inhospitable environments.
