Yet can we fault Seleukos for it? He comitted no attrocities and was a good ruler. His military skill was just below Alexander.

No, I can't accuse him for it, but I can't like him either.

You don't have to like someone to admire their skill. At least I don't.

You mean their skill in surviving? Maybe. I haven't yet srated thinking about Seleukus in terms of mere skill.  I think I have to read something on the matter before coming up wth some reasonable opinion. Do you hav esomething online on him? I'll check Questia to see it it has.
