 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2003.06.30
The two previous monographs on Eumenes, by Vezin and Anson, characterize him respectively as a loyal 'hero' of the Argead dynasty or as a power-hungry schemer.
While Eumenes did make known his link to Philip III and Alexander IV, this does not necessarily mean that he was really any more loyal to the Argead dynasty than his Macedonian rivals: the deceased king Alexander was the focal point of Eumenes' cult, not the king's living successors.
Once again, the author maintains that Eumenes' actions were dictated not simply by a strong sense of loyalty towards Perdiccas and the Argead dynasty: Eumenes could expect to have a greater degree of independence as a satrap under Perdiccas than, for example, as a follower of Antipater (p.

In the first article of the archaeology section W. Greenwalt, 'The Production of coinage from Archelaus to Perdiccas III and the Evolution of Argead Macedonia', analyses the numismatic record to supplement the poorly documented history of Macedonia in the first half of the fourth century.
Macedonia's collapse in the early fourth century is reflected by the staters of Amyntas III, which show a pattern of recovery, failure and a second, slow recovery to a modest level.
E. Carney, 'Olympias, Adea Eurydice, and the end of the Argead dynasty', argues that the Argeads were doomed because of Alexander's early death, the vulnerability of the heirs and the lack of mature male representatives to secure military power, the vital factor in protecting or obtaining legitimacy.
