The Bible says that Antiochus IV Epiphanes came to power through flatteries, meaning he was a smooth speaker that weaseled his way to the top.  Specifically, it was his flattery of Eumenes II and Attalus that got him his seat of power.  Also, I want to point out his name means “God Manifest,” as in he claimed to be a deity.  Yeah right!  In reality, the other name people gave him fit much better.  That name is Epimanes, which means, “The Mad One.”  Now, where does our blue boy, Daniel, speak of the Mad One’s flatteries?
