M. was installed by Cassius [I 10] Longinus as ruler (‘tyrannos ’) of the city of Tyre in 43/2 BC. M. supported the Hasmonean Antigonus , who had returned from exile, in his attempt to regain ground in Galilee and Judea against Herod ( Herodes ). Herod drove M. out of Galilee, but gave gifts to some of the captured Tyrian soldiers and sent them home (Jos. BI. 1,238f.; Ant. Iud. 14,297f.).
