Seleucus I Nicator (Nicator, "the Conqueror") (around 358-281 B.C.) was one of Alexander the Great's generals who, after Alexander's death in 323 B.C., established himself and his family in Mesopotamia and the Iranian plateau, ruling as far as the Indus region. He founded Seleuceia on the Tigris River (around 305) as a new royal capital.
