Thoughts on Demetrius II Aetolicos?


I just want to know what people think of him. There isnt much info on him on the internet, but if anyone knows where i can find a good read, be free to tell me.

The problem is scant sources for the period. Diodoros' text unfortunately deserts us largely after Ipsos and we're left with scraps of his work. Polybios does not pick up until Philip V. What sources you might pursue can be found at Attalus.org. Always a top resource.


Although one around here dismisses it, Chapter 13 of the CAH Vol VII (part I) covers Demetrios' reign. There are also other mentions of him in other chapters of the same volume.
