The Satrap Stele of Ptolemy: a reassessment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Satrap Stele is the most important native Egyptian source for Ptolemy the Satrap. This paper examines the language used to refer to Ptolemy to provide a basis for an evaluation of the ancient author(s) understanding of his position at the time. The controversial question of whether, in lines 8-12, he is referred to as "His Majesty” is discussed as well as the significance of the empty cartouches.
