Billows offers the first special learn of this nice basic and administrator, developing him as a key contributor to the Hellenistic monarchy and nation. After a winning occupation lower than Philip and Alexander, Antigonos rose to strength over the Asian section of Alexander's conquests. Embittered via the power hostility of those that managed the ecu and Egyptian components of the empire, he attempted to dispose of those competitors, an ambition which ended in his ultimate defeat in 301. In a corrective to the traditional reasons of his goals, Billows indicates that Antigonos used to be scarcely motivated by means of Alexander, looking to rule West Asia and the Aegean, instead of the total of Alexander's Empire.

Das ermöglichte es den Mitgliedern, sehr schnell zu publizieren. Cauchy nutzte dies aus wie kein anderer: zwischen 1839 und Februar 1848 publizierte er über 300 Artikel.
