), one of the ministers of Ptolemy Physcon (who had been placed on the throne of Egypt in the room of his exiled brother, Philometor), is introduced by Polybius as endeavouring by embassy and negotiation to obtain peace from Antiochus Epiphanes, B. C. 169, when the latter had gained possession of Egypt. (Pol. 28.16; comp. Liv. Epit. 46
; V. Max. 5.1.1
.) We hear of Comanus again in B. C. 162 as ambassador from Physcon to the Romans, to complain that Philometor refused to act up to their decree, by which Cyprus had been assigned to Physcon in the partition of the kingdom. (Pol. 31.27, xxxii. l; Diod. xxxi. Exc. de Legat.
