Seleucus VII - Basileus of Basileía tōn Seleukidōn from 83 BC to 69 BC
Seleucud VII Philometor ruled the sad remains of the Seleucid Empire from 83-69 BC.

In reality, he was probably nothing more than a local dynast with complicated family ties. Seleucus was unknown until recently, but from coins issued by him and his mother, Ptolemaic princess Cleopatra Selene, it is presumed that he was her son by king Antiochus X Eusebes, and a brother of later king Antiochus XIII Asiaticus.

He appears to have "reigned" during the occupation of Syria by Armenian king Tigranes. In reality, only a few cities were loyal to the Seleucids during this period.

For a while, he and his brother lived in Rome with their mother and attempted to gain Roman support for retaking Syria or possibly Egypt, but to no avail. He is probably identical to the Seleucus who later went to marry a Ptolemaic princess called Berenice IV, but was murdered by the discontented bride for his lack of manners.
