bak -i -dēz : (Βακχίδης , Bakchı́dēs ): ruler over Mesopotamia and a faithful friend of both Antiochus Epiphanes and Demetrius Soter, established at the request of the latter the rulership over Judea for Alcimus, who, desiring to become high priest, had made false accusations against Judas Maccabee (1 Macc 7:8ff; Ant, XII , x, 2). Bacchides is sent the second time to Judea after the Syrian general Nicanor was killed near Adasa and Judas Maccabee had gained control of the government (1 Macc 9:1ff; Ant, XII , x). Bacchides after an unsuccessful battle near Bethbasi was forced to make peace with Jonathan, the brother of Judas Maccabee (1 Macc 9:58ff; Ant, XIII , i). In 1 Macc 10:12 and 2 Macc 8:30 reference is made to the strongholds Bacchides built during his second campaign against Jerusalem (1 Macc 9:50). Compare ALCIMUS ; BETHBASI ; JONATHAN MACCABEE ; JUDAS MACCABEE ; ADASA ; NICANOR .
