Abstract

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.
