Son of Demetrius Soter, who regained the throne about 146 B.C., but was forced by Jonathan Machabeus to release the Jews from taxation and to increase their territory. He was later captured by the Parthians; on his release, after attacking Egypt he was defeated by Alexander Zabinas, a pretender, and assassinated at Tyre, 128 B.C.
