I have attempted in the following pages to describe the life of an important person in history and the events associated with him. The focus is deliberately narrow; other works exist on the general history of the third century BC and there is no need to duplicate them.

The paucity and ambiguity of the evidence is well known and this is not the place to attempt to solve all problems, even if it were possible. I have, however, attempted to make clear the areas where problems and controversy exist, to indicate possible solutions, and to provide a bibliography for further study of individual problems.


This book was originally to be a joint project with Professor Allen M.Ward of the University of Connecticut. Some progress had already been made when Professor Ward was forced to withdraw due to the pressures of other commitments. I decided to attempt to complete the work alone, but am grateful for his early assistance, and whatever is good in this may be to his credit. Of course, I assume full responsibility for the text in its current condition, including any errors or omissions.
