The Seleucid Empire was a Hellenistic state ruled by the Seleucid dynasty founded by Seleucus I Nicator following the division of the Macedonian empire following the death of Alexander the Great. Seleucus received Babylonia and, from there, expanded his dominions to include much of Alexander's near eastern territories. At the height of its power, it included central Anatolia, the Levant, Mesopotamia, Kuwait, Persia, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and northwest parts of India.

As a Diadochi faction, or successor faction of the Macedonians they share many common technologies, units and structures with them while also being Hellenistic.

Civilization TraitsEdit

  • To be expanded, since this civilization is under development.

Civilization BonusEdit

  • Cleruchy. (Klēroukhia)
    • History: The Seleucid kings invited Greeks, Macedonians, Galatians (Gauls), Cretans, and Thracians alike to settle in within the vast territories of the empire. They settled in military colonies called cleruchies (klēroukhia). Under this arrangement, the settlers were given a plot of land, or a kleros, and in return were required to serve in the great king's army when called to duty. This created a upper-middle class of military settlers who owed their livelihoods and fortunes to the Syrian kings and helped grow the available manpower for the imperial Seleucid army. A side effect of this system was that it drained the Greek homeland of military-aged men, a contributing factor to Greece's eventual conquest by Rome.
    • Effect: This unlocks the Seleucid expansion building, similar to Civic Centers for other factions. It is weaker and carries a smaller territory influence, but is cheaper and built faster.
      • Train settler-soldiers of various nationalities.
      • Min. distance from other Military Colonies: 100 meters.
  • Military Reforms (Stratiotikés Metarrythmíseis)
    • History: Seleucid and indeed Successor warfare evolved over the course of the 3rd and 2nd centuries. Contact with Eastern upstarts such as the Parthians and constant revolts of peripheral satrapies such as Bactria caused the Seleucids to reform their military and change their tactics, specifically in the cavalry arm. War with the Romans from the West and invasions from the Galatians also forced the Seleucids to evolve their infantry regiments to be more flexible.
    • Effect: At the City Phase, the Seleucids are given the choice of unlocking one of two sets of Champions: Traditional Army and Reform Army.
      • Traditional Army
        • Silver Shield Pikeman
        • Scythe Chariot
      • Reform Army
        • Romanized Swordsman
        • Seleucid Cataphract

Team BonusEdit

  • Name: Syrian Tetrapolis.
    • History: The political core of the Seleucid Empire consisted of four 'sister' cities: Antioch (the capital), Seleucia Pieria, Apamea, and Laodicea.
    • Effect: Allied Civic Centers are 20% cheaper.

Unique TechnologiesEdit

  • Hellenistic Metropolises
    • History: Beginning with Alexander, the Hellenistic monarchs founded many cities throughout their empires, where Greek culture and art blended with local customs to create the motley Hellenistic civilization.
    • Effect: Civic Centers gain double Health and double default arrows.
  • Marriage Alliance (Epigamia)
    • History: Seleucus I Nicator invaded the Punjab region region of India in 305 BC, confronting Chandragupta Maurya (Sandrokottos), founder of the Mauryan empire. It is said that Chandragupta fielded an army of 600,000 men and 9,000 war elephants (Pliny, Natural History VI, 22.4). Seleucus met with no success and to establish peace between the two great powers and to formalize their alliance, he married his daughter to Chandragupta. In return, Chandragupta gifted Seleucus a corps of 500 war elephants, which would prove a decisive military asset for Seleucus as he fought the rest of Alexander's successors.
    • Effect: A one-time purchase of 20 Indian War Elephants from the Mauryan Empire.
