(see Wernsdorff, Defid. Libr, Macc., § 73) suggests that the reading "governor of Idumaea" is an error for "governor of Jamniae" (as at 1 Maccabees 5:58). Josephus warrants this correction ( Ό Τῆς Ιαμνείαςστρατηγός , Ant. 12:8, 6). From the epithet applied to Gorgias, he seems to have been held in the highest detestation by the Jews (A.V., "that cursed man," Τὸν Κατάρατον ,' 2 Maccabees 12:35). The description of his flight to Marisa and his defeat by Dositheus, one of Judas's generals, is given at some length, though in an obscure and confused manner ( 2 Maccabees 12:34-38; comp. Joseph. Ant. 12:8, 6).
