Billows presents the first unique research of this nice common and administrator, developing him as a key contributor to the Hellenistic monarchy and country. After a winning occupation lower than Philip and Alexander, Antigonos rose to energy over the Asian part of Alexander's conquests. Embittered via the chronic hostility of those that managed the eu and Egyptian elements of the empire, he attempted to put off those competitors, an ambition which ended in his ultimate defeat in 301. In a corrective to the traditional reasons of his goals, Billows indicates that Antigonos used to be scarcely stimulated by means of Alexander, looking to rule West Asia and the Aegean, instead of the entire of Alexander's Empire.
