 Hyrcanus II Information
This, however, was restored to him by Gaius Julius Cæsar, who made him ethnarch (47 BCE); but Hyrcanus left all authority in the hands of Antipater, who used it for the promotion of the interests of his own house.
Indeed, Hyrcanus' incapacity and weakness were so manifest that, while he was defending Herod (whom he had previously saved from the hands of the Sanhedrin) before Mark Antony, the latter stripped him of his nominal political authority and of his title of ethnarch, and bestowed them upon the accused.
By the help of the Parthians, Antigonus the Hasmonean, Aristobulus' son, was proclaimed king and high priest, and Hyrcanus was seized and carried to Babylonia, after being made permanently ineligible for the office of high priest by the loss of his ears (according to Josephus, Antigonus bit Hyrcanus' ears off).
