76. (I have been favoured with the following translation of one of the wills, by Prof. Mahaffy.
W. M. F. P.)
"In the reign of Ptolemy, son of Ptolemy and
Arsinoe the brother gods, the 22nd year [225 B.C.]
. . . rates (? Eukrates or Sokrates) the son of Theogenes being priest of Alexander and the gods adelphi
and the gods euergetae, the Kanephoros of Arsinoe
Philadelphos being Berenike the daughter of Kallianax,
on the new moon of the month Xandikos, in the city
of the crocodiles of the Arsinoite nome, the following
testament was made, in his sound mind and right
understanding by Aphrodisias of Heraklea, a sojourner about 80 years old, short in stature [word lost]
with aquiline nose and bright eyes, curly hair, but
rather bald, with long ears.
May it be my lot to keep in health and manage
mine own affairs; but should any mortal chance befal
me - I bequeath all my goods to Axiothea daughter
of Dizoulos the Thracian woman, and I leave nothing
to anybody else. But I choose as executors king
Ptolemy son of Ptolemy and Arsinoe the brother
gods, and queen Berenike sister and wife of king
Ptolemy, and their children. Witnesses Paris the
Thessalian, son of Theophilos, of the 2nd settlement,
about 30 years old, of middle height, olive complexion, with high forehead and straight hair, with a
scar on the middle of his forehead, and a mole beside
his right eye. Getas son of [lost] the Koan, of the
2nd settlement, aged about 34 of middle height, olive
