Re: What a custom officer Ptolemy must have been?

From my previous post, I hope you will consider that Ptolemy was just a word that a foreign king, might give to the man or family that was responsible for the collection of tariffs, or taxes on goods coming and going from Egypt!

As such, he/they and Cleopatra, were the officials of an absentee leige, that were there to collect taxes for a greater empire!
