Demetrius II. (Nicator), son of the preceding, was reinstated in power by Ptolemaeus Philomater, his father-in-law. His idleness and dissipation caused him to be driven out, and he took refuge with the Parthians, marrying a Parthian princess, whilst his own wife attached herself to his brother Antiochus, who was killed in battle. Demetrius now returned, but found little favour with his subjects. Compelled once more to fly, he was killed by the order of his first wife in a temple at Tyre (126 B.C.).
