The Seleukid Empire was a Hellenistic kingdom ruled by the Seleukid dynasty founded by Seleukos I Nikator following the division of the empire created by Alexander III the Great after his death in 323 B.C. Seleukos received the central portion of Alexander’s conquests and, from there, expanded his dominions to include much of Alexander’s near eastern territories all the way up to Northern India area. The Seleukid Empire was a major center of Hellenistic culture that maintained the preeminence of Greek customs where a Greek-Macedonian political elite dominated. The Greek population of the cities who formed the dominant elite were reinforced by emigration from ancient Greece. Seleukid tried an expansion into Anatolia and Greece which was abruptly halted after decisive defeats at the hands of the Roman army. Their attempts to defeat their old enemy Ptolemaic Egypt were frustrated by Roman demands. Much of the eastern part of the empire was conquered by the Parthians under Mithridates I of Parthia in the mid-2nd century BC, yet the Seleucid kings continued to rule a rump state from the Seleukid Kingdom until the invasion by Armenian king Tigranes the Great and their ultimate overthrow by the Roman general Pompey.
