At XVIII 39.1-7, Diodorus narrates the conference at Triparadeisos, an unknown Syrian town where Antipatros supervised a new distribution of satrapies. There were few surprises: the murderers of Perdikkas were rewarded; the war against the Perdikkan forces in Asia Minor was assigned to Antigonos; Seleukos received Babylonia, the nucleus of his future kingdom. Diodorus concludes the episode with Antipatros’ crossing of the Hellespont, while omitting his actions on the way from Triparadeisos to the Hellespont. We only know them from Arr. Succ. 1.40-5. So we can suppose that Diodorus (or, rather, his source) actually effaced Antipatros’ march across Asia Minor by focusing on his return to Macedonia with the kings.
