Ptolemaeus or Ptolemaeus Sympetesis

21. An Egyptian, surnamed SYMPETESIS, who was appointed by Ptolemy Euergetes II. to govern Cyrene during his absence, when he went to Rome in B. C. 162, to prefer his complaints in person against his brother Philometor. He subsequently joined in the revolt of the Cyrenaeans against Euergetes, and appears to have commanded the army with which they defeated him near the Catabatlhmus. (Plb. 31.26.)
