This book offers a survey of Judea, Galilee, and Coele Syria from the satrapy under Darius to the Roman reorganization under Pompey. Palästina in der persischen und hellenistischen Zeit covers the region's inhabitants and geography: the Persian, Ptolemaic and Seleucid governments; the Arabs, Phoenicians, Jews, Samaritans, the dwellers in Scythopolis, and the Vale of Jericho. Also covered is the break-up of Seleucid Syria into a mess of tyrannies, and the Roman reorganization. This work serves as a handy review of the ancient sources, a background for the study of the Maccabean state, and an addition to the wider history of the Levant.
