A name given to several cities established during the Hellenistic period. These cities are named after Seleucus I Nicator, on e of the Diadochi who gained control of Alexander the Great's empire. As many as ten such cities have been identified...Seleucia in Syria was the most important city founded by Seleucus I; it was also known as Seleucia Pieria...the total population of the city--including women, children, and slaves--was approximately 30,000."
