Interview: On Antigonus II Gonatas w/ Robin Waterfield The Hellenistic Age Podcast

    • History

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.
