Historical background


EGYPT - LAGID OR PTOLEMAIC KINGDOM - PTOLEMY IV PHILOPATOR

(221-205 BC)

Ptolemy IV (238-205 AC.) is the son of Philippe IV Évergète and Berenice II. He received the title of Philopator (his father's friend) in derision, because he is accused of having poisoned him. During his reign, it was Sosibios who really ruled Egypt. He lost in 219 Seleucia of Pieria, which he had to abandon to Antiochus III the Great, but the victory of Raphia in 217 BC restored the balance and enabled him to recover Coele-Syria from the Seleucid. Ptolemy IV, after a dissolute life, died at age 33, leaving a five-year-old child, Ptolemy V, in the care of his wife/sister Arsinoe III.
