(i) The history of Alexander the son of Aristobulus.

1 When Pompey had set out for Rome, Hyrcanus and Antipater marched against the Arabians, [B.C. 62.] to bring them under the dominion of the Romans. To which the Arabians 2 submitted, trusting to their intimacy with Antipater, and paying great regard to his advice ; by which acts Antipater designed to reconcile the Romans to him. Therefore when Alexander the son of 3 Aristobulus [B.C. 58.] perceived the expedition of Hyrcanus, Antipater, and Scaurus, against the Arabians, and that they had departed to a great distance from the Holy City ; he journeyed till he 4 arrived there ; and entering into the palace, he brought out thence money for the expence of repairing the city-wall which Pompey had broken down. And he raised for himself an army, and 5 arranged all those matters which he wished, before Hyrcanus and his party should return to the city of the Holy House : and when they returned, he went out to meet them, and engaged them, and put them to flight.
