Abstract: This article analyzes the chronology of the Third Diadoch War (315–311 b.c.), mainly on the basis of Diodorus' narrative in Book 19, and proposes a reconstruction combining the high and the low chronology: high chronology until mid 313, neither of them in the period mid 313–spring 312, and low chronology for the period summer 312–winter 312/1.
Translation of the abstract: Cet article analyse la chronologie de la Troisième guerre des Diadoques (315–311 av. j.-c.) et en propose une reconstruction fondée principalement sur le livre XIX de Diodore qui combine les chronologies dites haute et basse: la chronologie haute jusqu'au milieu de l'année 313, aucune des deux pour la seconde moitié de 313, l'hiver et le printemps de 312, et la chronologie basse à partir de l'été 312.
