Notes: Covers the descendents of Pythodorus of Tralles and Zenon, rhetor of Laodicea.. Many are not in RE or PIR or are covered by different ID's.
This stemma follows the final proposal from Settipani in addenda 2002. Alternatives are eminently possible.  Antonia, Mark Anthony's eldest daughter, may well not be an ancestor.
Also M.Philopator, priest,  may not be the dynast of Olba. The wives of M.Antonius Polemo II may be the wives of Iulius Polemon II. King Artaxias III may not be the same man as the tr.mil. Etc.etc.
Articles: Barrett, A.A.: "Polemo II of Pontus and M. Antonius Polemo", in Historia 27, 1978, 437-48  concerning Polemo A864. He argues that they are two separate individuals.
Dmitriev, Sviatoslav: "Claudius' Grant of Cilicia to Polemo", in The Classical Quarterly, Vol. 53, 2003, pp.286-291
Settipani: Continuite p.362-367 for the descendents of Queen Pythodoris. Also his addenda p.51-55 with new stemma and two more versions on p.109-111 (p.111 version followed below).
Sullivan, Richard D.: "Dynasts in Pontus", in Aufstieg und Niedergang der Römischen Welt, Bd.II,7.2, 1980, pp.913-930 with stemma opposite p.928. 
He believes they descend from Anthony's daughter and that A864 (M.Antonius Polemo) is the same as King Iulius Polemon II (J472).
Sullivan, Richard D.: "King Marcus Antonius Polemo", in The Numismatic Chronicle Vol. 19, 1979, pp.6-20 argues that the dynast of Olba (A864) is the same man as the king of Pontus (J472).
Thonemann, Peter J.: "Polemo, Son of Polemo (Dio. 59.12.2.)", in Epigraphica Anatolica 37, 2004, p.144-150 with stemma p.150; very different.
Changes 17.1.2014: Stemma of Antonius Zeno and Antonius Polemo split off from rest of Antonii. 
8.11.2014: added article by Sullivan, added wives to Polemon II
10.1.2015: added Sullivan's article from 1979, Dmitriev'ss article and a comment on Barrett's article.
