Who were the Seleucids?? The largest and most diverse empire of the Hellenistic world, and yet so under-appreciated and overlooked... What do we know about this empire and why do we know so little?
This week's podcast is with Derek L., the host and creator of the Hellenistic Age Podcast about this vast and vastly overlooked period of history.
Now, if you find the rise and fall of empires fascinating, then we do have very exciting news... We have officially launched tickets to Classical wisdom’s symposium 2021: the end of empires and the fall of nations, taking place august 21st and 22nd. We are thrilled to have an amazing line up of some of the most brilliant minds to discuss history, philosophy and mythology.
