  • Apame (auch Apama, griechisch Ἀπάμα; * um 291 v. Chr.; † nach 249 v. Chr.) war eine syrisch-griechische Prinzessin aus der Dynastie der Seleukiden und die Gattin des Königs Magas von Kyrene. (de)
  • Apame II (ur. ok. 292 p.n.e. – zm. po 249 p.n.e.) – królowa Cyreny. Apame wywodziła się z grecko-perskiej dynastii Seleucydów, których władztwo obejmowało 2/3 imperium Aleksandra Wielkiego. Była córką Antiocha I Sotera – drugiego władcy imperium Seleucydów i Stratoniki I – córki Demetriusza Polikretesa, żoną Magasa i matką Bereniki II, żony Ptolemeusza III Euergetesa. Jej dziadkiem ze strony ojca był Seleukos I Nikator i jej imienniczka, Apame I. Około roku 274 p.n.e. Apame poślubiła króla Cyrenajki, Magasa, syna drugiej żony Ptolemeusza I Sotera. Małżeństwo to pieczętowało sojusz króla Cyrenajki z Antiochem II i jednocześnie poprawiło stosunki tego ostatniego z Egiptem Ptolemeuszy. Po roku 270 p.n.e. Apame urodziła Berenikę II, która jest jedynym znanym dzieckiem obojga swoich rodziców. Po śmierci męża w 253 p.n.e. samodzielnie rządziła Cyrenajką. Realizowała politykę antyegipską, sprzeciwiając się ingerencji Ptolemeuszy w sprawy swojego królestwa. Wkrótce na dwór cyrenejski przybył krewny Apame, młody syn jej dziadka (ojca Stratonike I, Demetriusza), Demetriusz zwany Pięknym w celu poślubienia Bereniki. Wkrótce jednak Apame i Demetriusz zostali kochankami i w czasie uroczystości pałacowych, Demetriusz został koronowany na króla Cyrenajki, popierając antyegipską politykę swojej teściowej. Berenika zorganizowawszy przewrót pałacowy obaliła matkę i swojego męża, podczas gdy Demetriusz został niemal natychmiast ścięty, Apame uwięziono. Po śmierci Demetriusza, Cyrenajka stała się częścią Egiptu Ptolemeuszy. Berenika II opuściła Cyrenajkę wyruszywszy do Egiptu, gdzie poślubiła swojego przyrodniego kuzyna, przyszłego Ptolemeusza III i poprzez to małżeństwo została królową Egiptu. Apame towarzyszyła córce do Aleksandrii, gdzie zamieszkała w pałacu razem z nią i jej rodziną. Ostatnia dotycząca jej inskrypcja jest datowana na 249 p.n.e.. (pl)

  • Apama II, sometimes known as Apame II (Ancient Greek: Ἀπάμα, about c. 292 BC-sometime after 249 BC) was a Syrian Greek Princess of the Seleucid Empire and through marriage was a Queen of Cyrenaica. Apama II was a daughter of the second Seleucid King Antiochus I Soter, who was of Greek Macedonian and Persian descent, and Queen Stratonice of Syria, who was Greek Macedonian descent. Her siblings included Stratonice of Macedon and the Seleucid King Antiochus II Theos. Her paternal grandparents were the first Seleucid King Seleucus I Nicator and his wife Queen Apama I, and her maternal grandparents were Antigonid King Demetrius I of Macedon and his wife Queen Phila. Apama was the namesake of her paternal grandmother and paternal aunt. Apama was born and raised in the Seleucid Empire. Around 275 BC, Apama married her maternal third cousin the Greek King Magas of Cyrene. The maternal grandmothers of Apama and Magas were paternal first cousins. The fathers of their grandmothers were brothers. Although her marriage to Magas was a dynastic one, Antiochus I arranged this marriage to occur as a part of a political alliance between him and Magas to invade Egypt. Through her marriage to Magas, Apama became Queen of Cyrenaica. In Cyrenaica, there is a surviving honorific inscription dedicated to Apama, as a monarch and wife of Magas. After 270 BC, Apama bore Magas a daughter called Berenice II, who would be their only known child. In 250 BC, Magas and Apama had betrothed Berenice II to her paternal cousin and Ptolemaic prince Ptolemy III Euergetes. Magas and the father of Ptolemy III, were maternal half brothers. Either in 250 BC or 249 BC, Magas had died. Apama had become a widow and a powerful Greek monarch. In order to protect Cyrenaica from the Ptolemaic dynasty, Apama summoned her maternal uncle the Greek Macedonian prince Demetrius the Fair to Cyrenaica. Apama offered Demetrius her daughter in marriage to him; in return he would become king. Demetrius agreed to his niece’s request and married her daughter. When Demetrius became king, there was no opposition in his rise to the throne, and he became so ambitious it reached the point of recklessness. Sometime after Demetrius married his great niece, Apama and Demetrius became lovers. Berenice became jealous of her mother’s affair with her husband. She argued with both her mother and her husband and led a coup against Demetrius who died in Apama’s arms. The poem Coma Berenices by Greek poet Callimachus (lost, but known in a Latin translation or paraphrase by Catullus), apparently refers to her supporters killing of Demetrius: "Let me remind you how stout-hearted you were even as a young girl: have you forgotten the brave deed by which you gained a royal marriage?" After the death of Demetrius, Cyrenaica became a part of the Ptolemaic Empire. Berenice II left Cyrenaica and travelled to Egypt where she married her cousin Ptolemy III and through her marriage became Queen of Egypt. Apama's ultimate fate is unknown. It is possible she travelled with Berenice II to Alexandria, where eventually she settled with her daughter and her family. Apama is sometimes known as Arsinoe. After she married Magas, there is a possibility Apama changed her name to Arsinoe, which was a more familiar Ptolemaic name. Apama was related to the Ptolemaic dynasty through marriage and was a distant relative of Eurydice of Egypt and Berenice I of Egypt, who were among the various wives of Ptolemy I Soter. (en)
