Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andragoras (died 238 BCE) was a Seleucid satrap of the province of Partahia (Parthia), under the Seleucid rulers Antiochus I Soter and Antiochus II Theos.Andragoras wrested independence from the Seleucid Empire in 247-245 BCE, at a time when the Seleucids were embroiled in conflict with Ptolemaic Egypt. He revolted soon after the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom itself had broken away from the Seuleucids. In defiance, he issued coins in which he wears the royal diadem as well as his name. Andragoras was a neighbour, a contemporary, and probably an ally of Diodotus I in Bactria, who also wrested independence around the same time, giving rise to the Greco-Bactrian kingdom.show more
