Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. Nummerin the Ptolemies is a modren invention; the Greeks distinguished them bi epithet (nickname). The nummer gien here is the present consensus, but thare has been some disagreement in the nineteent century aboot which o the later Ptolemies should be coontit as reignin. Syne aulder soorces mey gie a number one heicher or lawer, epithets are the maist reliable way o determinin which Ptolemy is bein referred tae in ony gien case.
