  Antiochus IV Epiphanes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Antiochus is supposed to be the 'little horn' and 'king of fierce countenace' predicted in Daniel 8 to come after the division of the Greco-Macedonian Empire.
Antiochus said he would discuss it with his council, whereupon the envoy drew a line in the sand round him and said, "Think about it here." The implication was that, were he to step out of the circle without having first undertaken to withdraw, he would be at war with Rome.
The reign of Antiochus was a last period of strength for the empire, but in some way it was fatal; because he was an usurper and left no successor except a little boy, his death was followed by devastating dynastic wars.

If Antiochus stole the long list of central Temple items in 169, including the golden altar, the table of presentation, the candelabrum and all their ancillary vessels, not to mention all the other vessels and gold he could find, there wouldn’t have been much left to take in 168.
