The following is an excerpt from:

"Jesus Among the Julio-Claudians"
copyright 2017 Charles N. Pope
https://play.google.com/store/books/author?id=Charles%20N.%20Pope&hl=en
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075X3DJGY

In the previous chapters it was shown that the early Julio-Claudian Dynasty patterned itself quite closely after the early Hellenistic Period, and as follows:

Julius Caesar = neo-Alexander III (“The Great”)

Pompey = neo-Darius III

Crassus = neo-Seleucus/Lysimachus

Octavius/Augustus = neo-Antiochus

Caesarion = neo-Alexander IV

Tiberius = neo-Ptolemy Epigone (in Rome only, Caesarion elsewhere)

Marc Antony = neo-Ptolemy Soter

Herod = neo-Heracles/Ptolemy Ceraunus

Even more surprising, we shall find that the emulation of Alexander and his dynasty did not end there. The entire Julio-Claudian dynasty was conceived as a repetition of the Ptolemaic/Seleucid Period. And of particular interest to Grail study, this included a Roman rendition of leading Hellenistic savior figures.
