The Delegation to Seleucos II at Baiseira. A Brief Note

Omar Coloru

This contribution discusses the location of Baiseira, where Seleucos II, during his campaign
against the Parthians, gave an audience to a delegation from a group of villages involved in
horse breeding. The article challenges the assumption that the epistle comes from Drangiana and
suggests that it better fi ts the context of appeals to the king from Media.
