Would you concider the antigonid dynasty in macedon successful?

On a scale of 1-10 id put them at 6. I mean before the romans came they had substantial control over the agean, the greek cities and even epirus at times. Sure they had their own problems but most of them were overcomed. But in the end they got recked by the romans.

Considering their position after Ipsus, they did fine. Antigonos did well to hold onto his Empire for so long against so many capable opponents. The Seleucid too was eventually taken apart by Rome as well, as was the Ptolemaic. The Antigonids in all were fairly successful. I think I'd give the a 7 rating
