In Response To: Splitting Ptolemaic Heirs ()

please do not throw this lass out the window, but... But, why not 'play' with concept that ptolomies were herods... rather than other way around. Yes, it SEEMS that herod clan was relatively 'recent' manifestation, yet, with so little data re herods beforfe father of herod the great, is it not POSSIBLE that herod progenitors {with herod family OBVIOUSLY representing a VAST amalgam of ethnic groups.... beyond edomite and nabataean} were around when the ptolomies were still in their mother's womb ?
