064: Antigonid Macedon - Of Revolutions and Reforms The Hellenistic Age Podcast

    • History

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.
