Antiochus I
Antiochus II
Antiochus III
Antiochus IV, Antiochus Epiphanes
Antiochus V
Antiochus VI
Antiochus VII

(an ti' ah chuhss) Name of thirteen rulers of Syria Palestine headquartered in Antioch. They were part of the Seleucid dynasty which inherited part of Alexander the Great's kingdom. No Antiochus is specifically mentioned in Scripture. Many Bible students think the Book of Daniel originally had its attention focused on the Seleucid kings, particularly Antiochus IV (175 to 164 B.C.). The Maccabean revolt and Jewish intertestamental history occurred during the reigns of the Antiochus kings. See Daniel; Intertestamental History & Literature; Maccabees, Maccabean War.
