The article aims to analyze the political and military situation of Lydia after the death of Alexander the Great: in Babylonian settlement Perdiccas appointed Menander as satrap of the region, while in 320 BCE in Triparadeisos Antipater chose as s new satrap of Lydia admiral Kleitos. After his death, Lydia came under Antigonos’ control: after Ipsos, however, Lysimachos, king of Thrace, became master of the territory until his death in 281 BCE. After 281, Lydia remained under the control of the Seleucids, who, although with difficulty, tried to hold together a kingdom that stretched from the Aegean Sea to Mesopotamia.
