Historical background


EGYPT - LAGID OR PTOLEMAIC KINGDOM - PTOLEMY V EPIPHANES

(204-180 BC)

Ptolemy V, king at 5, died at 29. He was crowned Pharaoh in Memphis in 197 BC. This event was immortalized by the Rosetta stone that Champollion was to transcribe 2,000 years later, delivering the key to the hieroglyphic writing. Ptolemy V married Cleopatra I, daughter of Antiochus III, and left two minor sons: Ptolemy VI and VIII.
