This chapter addresses the settlements in Achaia, Alexandreia, Antigoneia, Antioch, Apameia, Apollonia, Arethousa, Arsinoe, Astakos, Charadros, Demetrias, Dipolis, Epiphaneia, Heraia, Herakleia, Kasiana, Laodikeia, Larisa Ssizara, Lysias, Megara, Nikopolis, Pella, Perinthos, Ras Ibn Hani, Seleukeia and Tegea. Pharnake, Pella, Chersonese, and Apameia are the four names for the city that were ultimately know as Apameia. It has been suggested that Demetrias might have been located southwest of Hama at Tell Kalakh. Dipolis was on the coast of Syria. Kasian is described as the birthplace of Diodotos Tryphon and a fortress in the territory of Apameia on the Axios. The suggestion is that a settlement at Ras Ibn Hani was established by the Ptolemies in the middle of the third century B.C. in the wake of the Third Syrian War.

Keywords:   Pharnake, Pella, Chersonese, Apameia, Axios, Third Syrian War, Diodotos Tryphon, Ras Ibn Hani, Kasian, Hama
