Seleucid Grand Campaign

Seleucid Faction

Antiochus I Soter, son of the Alexandrian Successor Seleucus ‘Nicator’, rules a vast and culturally diverse territory formed from the remnants of the great Macedonian conqueror's eastern empire. Rapidly becoming Hellenized by its ruling Macedonian elite, the Seleucid Empire is an industrious centre of city building and civil engineering, attracting many Greek colonists. Such immigration provides the missing infantry support required to compliment the expert light and heavy cavalry of Seleucid armies. Despite an, at times, precarious position at home, the Seleucids now look to expand into Ptolemaic Egypt and beyond, to Alexander’s former western empire in Greece and Macedon.
