Antiochus IV of Syria

Antiochus IV of Kommagene was made king of Kommagene by Caligula, who deposed him almost immediately. Restored by Claudius in 41, he reigned until 72 as an ally of Rome against Parthia. That year he was deposed on suspicion of treason and retired Rome. Several of his coins are extant.
