Warfare in the hellenistic age Director: emilee jones
The Helenistic period of Greece was from 323 BC to 31 BC which is the time period of this committee. When Alexander the Great died in 323 BC his empire was divided between his most trusted advisors and Generals the three most powerful dynasties being the: Antigonids (Greece and Macedonian), Seleucids of Syria and Persia, and the Ptolemies of Egypt. Each dynasty will be represented in this committee but a heavy focus will be on Greece and Macedonia. Every Hellenstic state was ruled by Kings driven by a desire to amass wealth for their state. It is your job as delegates to strike a balance between your King's wishes and the general well being of the Grecian states as Rome continues to rise. In this committee we will explore preserving the Golden age culture, trade agreements, foreign policy and war, marriage alliances, the frightening rise of Rome and most importantly each state's relationship with the gods. Watch out for the gods, delegates and watch out for each other! Will the Revolutionary Command Council help lead the nation of Egypt to the greatness it is destined for or will push the country deeper into an insurmountable state of chaos?
