Ptolemy VIII - Basileus of Ptolemaïkḕ Basileía from 145 BC to 116 BC
Ptolemaios VIII 'Physcon' was king of Ptolemaic Egypt no less than three times; from 69-164 BC with siblings Ptolemy VI & Cleopatra II, from 144-131 BC with sister-wife Cleopatra II and niece / step-daughter-wife Cleopatra III, and finally from 126-116 BC with sister-wife Cleopatra II and niece-wife Cleopatra III.

While his official epithet was Euergetes, he was popularly known as "Physkōn" meaning sausage, potbelly or bladder, due to his obesity.

Physcon died in 116 BC. He left the throne to Cleopatra III and one of her sons, whichever she preferred.
