Charles, you wrote;
"Herod the Great (Iullus) son of Ptolemy XII and Alexander (J.Caesar) son of Ptolemy X were from different collateral lines within the family of the Ptolemies."
I do not understand why you did it or do it, but isn't it obvious to most of us that "Iullus" and "Julius" are the same?
For more please do a search for Julius Caesar Scaliger?
"Julius Caesar Scaliger was the father of Josephus Justus Scaliger (1540-1609), who maintained a vast correspondence with European humanists and scholars, whose names are listed here."
Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_Caesar_Scaliger"
Then look up Josephus Justus Scaliger?
Then Petavius? I can recommend this;
Other links are available for those who wish to persue this link!
