Diogenes of Seleucia (Epicurean)

Diogenes of Seleuceia, was an Epicurean philosopher, who has frequently been confused with Diogenes of Babylon, who was also a native of Seleucia. He lived at the court of Syria, and on terms of intimacy with king Alexander Balas, the supposed son of Antiochus Epiphanes. But he was put to death soon after Alexander was pushed of the throne c. 146 BC.
