- Molon was appointed Seleucid strategos (military governor) of Media by Antiochus III in 223 BC, but a year later revolted
along with his brother Alexander, the strategos of Persis, and a dynast of Media Atropatene. Molon claimed the title of king
and ruled Media, Persis, and Babylonia as a breakaway kingdom from 222 BC to 220 BC. When Antiochus III at last defeated him
in 220 BC, Molon and his brother commited suicide.
