This volume and its companion volume gather for the first time the lilerary and archaeological evidence for the Romanization of the Seleucid and Ptolemaic armies during the reigns of Antiochus IV Epiphanes of Syria (175-164 BC) and Ptolemy VI Philometor of Egypt (180-145 BC). It has long been realized that the late Hellenistic armies of the first century BC were equippedd and organized along Roman lines. It seems, however, that the process started during the second quarter of the second century, probably as a direct consequence of the Roman victory over Macedon at the Battle of Pydna in 168 BC. In this volume, which concerns the Ptolemaic army under Ptolemy VI Philometor, an analysis of the reformed army based upon the work of Kallikles son of Kallikles the Alexandrian is carried out. Also, one of the most in depth studies ever of late Hellenistic soldiers is undertaken when a set of tombstones from Sidon is described in detail.
