    Default Sources for Seleucids and Ptolemies-please

    Hey I am very interested in the late Hellenistic armies right now and have not been able to find many sources on this period. I mainly use Osprey Men-at-Arms and related series, but they don't have anything on the Seleucids and Ptolemies. So I was wondering what sources might be out there that the EB team used that anyone could suggest to me. In particular I am interested stuff I have heard about what Nick Sekunda has written on this subject outside of his Osprey publications. As well as anything else of similar quality. Keep in mind that I am a college student and relatively lacking in free-spending funds. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome Chairman.
    I hope you like it here.
    I understand your lack of spending funds and as such I have two sites to recommend.


    First one, in two parts... (infantry)
    http://www.ne.jp/asahi/luke/ueda-sar...hikrates1.html

    http://www.ne.jp/asahi/luke/ueda-sar...hikrates2.html

    Second, the Tarantines,
    http://www.ne.jp/asahi/luke/ueda-sarson/Tarantines.html

    After you have read these, you are well on your way to understand how things worked back then. The author has done a fine job.

    Ptolemaioi, some great info on them here... (page 25 onwards)

    188 maps of the Ancient world,
