8c - Egypt, 146–31 b.c.

from PART I
Summary
In Egypt 146 BC, the year of the destruction of Corinth and Carthage, was the last full year in the life of Ptolemy VI Philometor, who died fighting in Syria in the following autumn. In looking beyond the Greek capital on the Mediterranean, Euergetes II followed the examples of his father and of his elder brother. The dynastic struggles of the last century of Ptolemaic control with constant changes of ruler, significant overseas expenditure by Auletes and, latterly, the absence of Cleopatra in Rome, had had their effect on the economy of Egypt. The family archive from 150 to 88 BC of Peteharsemtheus son of Panebkhounis or that of Dryton stationed in the garrison at Gebelen show how easily soldiers intermarried with Egyptian women; their children were bilingual often with both Greek and Egyptian names. Both languages might be used in legal documents and families who once came from Crete or Cyrene were assimilated into the society of Egypt.
