The passage in the Chronicle of the Successors dealing with the year Phil.07 (=317/316 BC; ABC 10 Obv. 14–18 = BCHP 3 Obv. 33–37) is often used as a marker to favour the low-chronology hypothesis for the early Hellenistic period and Second Diadoch War. This in-depth study of this passage deals with the nature of the troops mentioned there (lúeren2.meš lugal, ‘royal troops’, and lúḪa-ni-i šà lugal, ‘royal Ḫanû troops”) and the possible implications for the chronological debate. The result is that the passage is not pivotal for the low chronology because it is not only in a low-chronology scenario that it is possible. The use of ‘royal (Ḫanû) troops' in the Chronicle does not exclude the high chronology for the Second Diadoch War.
