Gerasa (modern Jerash in Jordan) became a substantial center under Antiochos IV Epiphanes, at which time it became known as Antioch on the Chrysorhoas. It became part of the territory of Iudaea and in 63 B.C. Pompeius Magnus made it part of the Decapolis. It received the status of a Roman colony in the third century.
