Septimius Antiochus (died after 273) was a Roman usurper in Syria during the 3rd century. In 272 AD Emperor Aurelian had defeated the breakaway Kingdom of Palmyra; its king Vaballathus and his mother Zenobia were in Roman captivity. In 273 AD another rebellion against Roman rule broke out in Palmyra. The rebels first approached Aurelian's governor Marcellianus to become emperor, but he pretended to consider the offer as he sent a letter to Aurelian warning of the rebellion. While the rebels were waiting they decided to elevate Septimius Antiochus, the reputed son of Zenobia, to the purple. Receiving Marcellinus's letter, the Emperor reacted quickly, and in the spring of 273 the city was brought back under Roman rule. Aurelian punished the city heavily, but allegedly spared Antiochus.

dbo:abstract
  • Septimius Antiochus († nach 273) war kurzzeitig römischer Usurpator in Syrien. Im Jahr 272 hatte der römische Kaiser Aurelian das Sonderreich von Palmyra besiegt; der Gegenkaiser Vaballathus und seine Mutter Zenobia gerieten in römische Gefangenschaft. Nach Zosimos brach ein Jahr später in Palmyra eine Rebellion gegen die römische Herrschaft aus, in deren Verlauf Antiochus, vermutlich der Vater (oder ein Sohn?) Zenobias, auf Betreiben eines Apsaeus zum Augustus ausgerufen wurde. Der Aufstand wurde von Marcellinus an Aurelian verraten und von kaisertreuen Truppen niedergeschlagen. Der Kaiser schonte angeblich das Leben des Usurpators. (de)
