friends, Poplas, and Ptolemy, and Nicolaus, and left behind him Philip,

Salome went also along with him with her sons, as did also the king's brethren
and sons-in-law. These, in appearance, went to give him all the assistance
they were able, in order to secure his succession, but in reality to accuse
him for his breach of the laws by what he had done at the temple.
