The topic of this study is highly relevant for the history of the Seleucid Empire. Due to the patchiness of the known sources the study deals with a difficult area.

"Mit seiner instruktiven analyse des numismatischen Befunds hat der Verfasser den Rahmen abgesteckt fuer weitere Forschung." Das Historisch-Politische Buch .
