[[Phrygia]], or the '''Antigonid Empire''', is a great power centered in Syria, directly holding 330 territories with a total population of 2765, spanning from Palestine to the Aegean Sea and controlling a vast network of feudatories, satrapies, and tributaries. Led by Antigonus Monophthalmus (the "one-eyed") at start, Phrygia is one of the largest and perhaps the strongest of the Diadochi successor states of the Argead Empire of Alexander the Great, though one that has gained the enmity of all of the rest, having recently lost much of the east to the nascent {{flag|Seleukid Empire}} with the support of {{flag|Egypt}} and currently engaged in an invasion of Greece against {{flag|Macedon}}. Historically the Antigonids were defeated at the Battle of Ipsus shortly after the game start and lost most of their territories only to rise up again and seize Macedon from the ruling Antipatrid dynasty; ingame, Phrygia must prepare to deal with the outbreak of the Fourth War of the Diadochi that will soon force it to either concede territory or face war across multiple distant fronts, all the while dealing with a research-poor and culturally and religiously divided realm that may soon face unrest and upheaval if the Antigonid cause cannot be maintained.

Phrygia is one of the Diadochi successor states of Alexander the Great's empire. Led initially by Antigonus Monophthalmus (the "one-eyed"), Phrygia occupies land in Anatolia, Syria, and a few cities in Greece; moreover, it is the overlord to many of the Greek minor powers along the Aegean coast. While it starts as one of the largest powers in the game (with 3003 population), Phrygia is culturally and religiously divided, making it less stable than other countries such as Rome or Macedon. Moreover, the two weaker Diadochi states bordering Phrygia, Macedon and Thrace, are allied to each other and guaranteed by both the Seleucid Empire and Egypt, making expansion more challenging. To play Phrygia successfully, the player must rectify Phrygia's poor research ratio and be extra careful with expansion so as not to generate excessive unrest, while defending Phrygia across multiple distant fronts.

Phrygia has a number of unique events that can trigger in the early game, centered around its background and interactions with the other Diadochi states, {{flag|Seleukid Empire}}, {{flag|Egypt}}, {{flag|Macedon}}, and {{flag|Thrace}}.

=== The Wars of the Diadochi ===
+
As the Satrap of Phrygia, our ruler Antigonus was not part of most of the great campaigns of Alexander. But in the conflicts of the last decade he has risen to be the most powerful of the successors. Recently however we have lost Persia and Babylon to Seleucus, even if we enjoy continued growing influence in Greece.
At start, all the Diaodchi states will receive an event that gives them claims on all of the western half of the former Argead Empire, allowing them to easily declare war and conquer territory from each other. These claims will usually go away on the death of the first ruler, but uniquely Phrygia can keep its claims until the death of its second ruler (typically Antigonos's son Demetrios).  
 
  
=== The Antigonid Cause ===
+
Our reputation as a protector of the free Greek cities have earned us many friends among the smaller Greek states. Otherwise we now stand alone...
When Antigonos dies, one of two events can trigger depending on whether or not Phrygia controls certain territories (particularly Korinthos (418), which starts off under {{flag|Macedon|0}} [[Macedon|Macedonian]] control). If Phrygia does not control all of the necessary provinces, they will be forced to choose between either releasing {{flag|Pergamon}} from all of their territories in the region of Asia, which may then become a tributary of {{flag|Thrace}}, or getting a considerable penalty to stability, happiness, and loyalty that may result in a rebellion. Successfully taking and holding all the required territories will instead give a subject loyalty bonus.

With the passing of its first King the Phrygian realm is more disunited than it has been in a long time. Especially among the cities of Asia Minor loyalty is seemingly wavering and the entire region is now at risk of defecting from central authority. We could likely hold on to it, but this would come at the price of further alienating our remaining loyal subjects...

=== Fourth War of the Diadochi ===
+
 
Shortly after the game starts, Phrygia will be given the choice to either resume the war in Greece against {{flag|Macedon}} or retreat entirely, releasing all subjects and territories in the region and angering the other Hellenistic subject states, possibly leading to revolts. {{flag|Macedon}} may choose to concede Korinthos (418) but will most likely decide to go to war, usually pulling in allied {{flag|Thrace}} as well. After a few months {{flag|Egypt}} and {{flag|Seleukid Empire}} may join the fray, forcing Phrygia to choose between conceding significant amounts of territory in the Levant - possibly including their capital - or face war against all of the other four Diadochi combined.
