This man was surnamed Nikanor;[1] [he is the man] who gave to his own son Antiochos[2] his own wife Stratonike,[3] after Antiochos had conceived a passion for her, had fallen sick through his desire for her, and was concealing the fact but was diagnosed by Erasistratos the doctor.[4] And they say that Seleukos, when he was with Alexander the Macedonian and Alexander was sacrificing a bull, it ran away and Seleukos overcame it by himself, catching hold of its horns.[5] And for this reason, on the statue of him they have set horns on his head.
