Silver coin of Antiochus I. The reverse shows Apollo seated on an omphalos. The Greek inscription reads ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΑΝΤΙΟΧΟΥ (of king Antiochus). Antiochus I Soter (Greek: Αντίοχος Α' Σωτήρ, i.e. Antiochus the Savior, unknown – 261 BC), was a king of the Hellenistic Seleucid Empire. He reigned in 281–261 BC. Antiochus I was half Persian, his mother Apama being one of the eastern princesses whom Alexander the Great had given as wives to his generals in 324 BC. In 294 BC, prior to the death of his father Seleucus I, Antiochus married his stepmother, Stratonice, daughter of Demetrius Poliorcetes. His elderly father reportedly instigated the marriage after discovering that his son was in danger of dying of lovesickness. Stratonice bore five children to Antiochus: Seleucus (he was executed for rebellion), Laodice, Apama II, Stratonice of Macedon and Antiochus II Theos, who succeeded his father as king.

On the assassination of his father in 281 BC, the task of holding together the empire was a formidable one. A revolt in Syria broke out almost immediately. Antiochus was soon compelled to make peace with his father's murderer, Ptolemy Keraunos, apparently abandoning Macedonia and Thrace. In Anatolia he was unable to reduce Bithynia or the Persian dynasties that ruled in Cappadocia.

In 278 BC the Gauls broke into Anatolia, and a victory that Antiochus won over these Gauls by using Indian war elephants (275 BC) is said to have been the origin of his title of Soter (Gr. for "saviour").

At the end of 275 BC the question of Coele-Syria, which had been open between the houses of Seleucus and Ptolemy since the partition of 301 BC, led to hostilities (the First Syrian War). It had been continuously in Ptolemaic occupation, but the house of Seleucus maintained its claim. War did not materially change the outlines of the two kingdoms, though frontier cities like Damascus and the coast districts of Asia Minor might change hands.

On March 27 268 BC Antiochus I laid the foundation for the Ezida Temple in Borsippa.[1] His eldest son Seleucus had ruled in the east as viceroy from 275 BC(?) till 268/267 BC; Antiochus put his son to death in the latter year on the charge of rebellion. Circa 262 BC Antiochus tried to break the growing power of Pergamum by force of arms, but suffered defeat near Sardis and died soon afterwards. He was succeeded in 261 BC by his second son Antiochus II Theos.[2]

Antiokos I Soter (gresk: ??t????? ?' S?t??, «Antiokos Befrieren»; født ukjent - død 261 f.Kr.) var den andre kongen av det hellenistiske Selevkideriket. Han styrte fra 281 f.Kr. ved sin fars død og fram til 261 f.Kr.

Han var selv halvt persisk, hans mor Apama var en av de østlige prinsesser som Aleksander den store hadde gitt som hustruer til sine hærførere i 324 f.Kr.[1] I 294 f.Kr., før hans far Ptolemaios I Soter var død, hadde Antiokos giftet sin stemor, Stratonike av Syria,[2] datter av Demetrios I Poliorketes. Hans aldrende far skal etter sigende ha tilskyndet ekteskapet etter at han oppdaget at hans sønn var i fare for å forgå av forelskelse. Stratonike fødte ham fem barn: Seleukos (som ble henrettet for opprør), Laodike, Apama II, Stratonike av Makedonia og Antiokos II Theos som etterfulgte sin far som konge.

Gullstater av Antiokos I, c. 275 f.Kr. Forside: Antiokos' profil med diadem. Motsatt: Naken, sittende Apollon på omphalos, lener seg på en bue og holder to piler. Gresk tekst: BASI?EOS ANTIOXOY (av kong Antiokos).

Da hans far ble myrdet i 281 f.Kr. havnet store oppgaven med å holde Selevkideriket sammen på Antiokos. Et opprør i Syria brøt ut nesten umiddelbart. Antiokos var snart tvunget til å slutte fred med farens morder, Ptolemaios Keraunos, samtidig som han tydeligvis oppga Makedonia og Trakia. I Anatolia klarte han ikke å bekjempe Bitynia eller de persiske dynastiene som styrte i Kappadokia.

I 278 f.Kr. brøt keltisktalende folk inn i Anatolia og slo seg ned i Galatia. En seier som Antiokos vant over disse ved å benytte indiske krigselefanter i 275 f.Kr. skal etter sigende være opprinnelsen til hans tittel som Soter (gresk for «Befrier» eller «Frelser»). Mot slutten av det samme året førte spørsmålet om Koilesyria, som hadde vært åpent mellom selevkidedynastiet og ptolemeerdynastiet i Egypt siden 301 f.Kr., til åpen fiendskap i form av den første syriske krig. Koilesyria hadde jevnlig vært okkupert av Egypt, men Selevkideriket hadde opprettholdt sitt krav på området. Krigen endret ikke grensene mellom de to rikene i større grad, men grensebyer som Damaskus og kystdistriktene i Anatolia skiftet eier.

Den 27. mars 268 f.Kr. la Antiokos grunnleggelsen for Ezidatempelet i Borsippa.[3] Hans eldste sønn Seleukos hadde styrt i øst som visekonge fra kanskje 275 f.Kr. og fram til 268/267 f.Kr. Han ble nødt å henrette sønnen det sistnevnte året, anklaget for opprør. En gang rundt 262 f.Kr. forsøkte Antiokos å bryte den voksende makten til Pergamon med våpenmakt, men gikk på et nederlag ved Sardis og døde kort tid etterpå. Han ble etterfulgt i 261 f.Kr. av hans andre sønn Antiokos II Theos.[4
