Abstract :
This paper considers the foundation year of Samaria-Sebaste and the implications it has for the chronology of some related events. In doing so, a new time setting will be proposed for three topics: 1) the grant of Trachonitis, Batanea and Auranitis; 2) the Syrian governors Varro and Cicero the Younger; and 3) the departure of Alexander and Aristobulus IV for Rome.
