Phraataces and Malthace
In Response To: Phraataces and Muses ()

Here's the link to Ralph Ellis' new book about Cleopatra and Jesus:

I see that he proposes that Thea Muses is a daughter of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. Maybe Herod/Phraates/Juba got a "two-for-one" bridal special. That is, he wedded a daughter of Caesar and of Marc Antony by Cleopatra. Thea Muses might then be another name of Malthace. There is a bit of similarity in the names. Ralph also notes that Augustus and Juba II were boyhood friends. This just gets better and better!
