Thus was Pelusium taken. But still, as they were marching on, those
Egyptian Jews that inhabited the country called the country of Onias stopped
them. Then did Antipater not only persuade them not to stop them, but to
afford provisions for their army; on which account even the people about
Memphis would not fight against them, but of their own accord joined Mithridates.
Whereupon he went round about Delta, and fought the rest of the Egyptians
at a place called the Jews' Camp; nay, when he was in danger in the battle
with all his right wing, Antipater wheeled about, and came along the bank
of the river to him; for he had beaten those that opposed him as he led
the left wing. After which success he fell upon those that pursued Mithridates,
and slew a great many of them, and pursued the remainder so far that he
took their camp, while he lost no more than fourscore of his own men; as
Mithridates lost, during the pursuit that was made after him, about eight
hundred. He was also himself saved unexpectedly, and became an unreproachable
witness to Caesar of the great actions of Antipater.
