tracing to hercules
In Response To: forebears of herods ()

..
with my search for progenitors of the herod line, i've often wondered if the herod kinfolk thought of themselves as descendents of hercules. Didn't marc antony's gens claim hercules as ancestor ?

Looking at cleopatra selene's family tree, it seems she too has bonds to hercules.... via the ptolemies and their forebears among argead dynasty {in addition to marc antony's links to hercules}. I'm CERTAIN all this adds up to something. Not sure what it adds up to. Just give me time... a century of two.
