Books and websites about Antiochus III


Hello y`all,

I need help to find books about Antiochus III and maybe Philip V too. I have searched all over the net but nothing. Expessially about the Bactrian campaign and the wars against Egypt. I have already read Appians Roman-Syrian Wars, so I know the greek campaign and the battle of Magnesia. Please help.
Thanks in advance.

Cheers

A good book on Philip the V is Hannibal's War by Lazenby - there's a whole section devoted to what he was doing during the Second Punic War, and goes into the details of his campaigns, though there probably is a better book on him...

Do you want primary or secondary sources?

That really does not matter, I just have problems with finding anything going into the details of the campaigns
