Ptolemy III King of the Ptolemaic Kingdom from 244 BC to 222 BC.
Ptolemaios III was the third king of the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt.

He was the eldest son of Ptolemy II Philadelphus and his first wife, Arsinoe I, and came to power in 246 BC upon the death of his father. He married Berenice of Cyrene in the year corresponding to 244/243 BC.

He was responsible for the first known example of a series of decrees published as bilingual inscriptions on massive stone blocks in three writing systems.

After declaring his son his successor in 222 BC, Ptolemios III died, leaving Egypt at the peak of its political power and internally stable and prosperous.

The mintmark to the left of the eagle on this rare bronze hemiobol of Ptolemy III is a harpē; a type of ancient Greek sword which had a sickle protrusion along one edge near the tip of the blade. Lorber explains that these coins were assigned to Ioppe by Svoronos because the harpē was the weapon of Perseus, who according to myth rescued Andromeda in the harbour of Ioppe. A fun, if slightly irrelevant fact; Ioppe is an ancient port city in Israel that is also known as ‘Jaffa’ and later became famous for it’s delicious oranges. It’s also the name of my cat.
