Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book titled Ptolemy II Philadelphus and his world . This book, to sum up, is not directed merely towards making it possible to write a fairer character-sketch of Ptolemy Philadelphus than Tarn did in 1913, or one more in keeping with the spirit of our age- though to do so would be a worthy aspiration. Its ethos from beginning to end, we its authors claim, is interdisciplinary: each facet of the gem casts its own light on Philadelphus' world-a world which was Greek and Egyptian, but also Jewish, Nubian, Edomite and more; secular and religious; literate and illiterate; rich and poor; female and male. In offering Ptolemy II Philadelphus and his World to the twenty-first century world, in conclusion, we decisively reject Callimachus' prejudice about a big book being a big problem.

Keywords: Edomite; Egypt; Jewish; Nubian; Ptolemy Philadelphus
