Ptolemy 9 was on the throne for three separate spells: 116-110; 109-107; and 88-80. Therefore no error on your part! Smiley

There's another native rebel pharaoh - Harsiese - in 131/130 BC.

Somebody has just asked me if there was any information on the Roman military campaign just after Egypt had become a Roman province.

Quote from: Farhad
...have you heard about a city with a name similar to "Faryan" in Sudan? I have found sort of For, Fur, Fwor but do not help me. It might related to the first Roman attempt to conqueror Nubia 24-22B.C.

Quote from: my answer
how certain are you about the name "Faryan" and where did you get it from?
In 24/23 BCE a general named Petronius was given the task of countering a Kushitic attack. Petronius went from Alexandria to Elephantine/Philae/Abu to Pselchis/Maharraqa* to Premnis/Karanog* to Napata/Gebel-Barkal. I don't know from where he set out to enter Nubia, but I suppose he would have assembled his army at Syene/Aswan.
*) sites now submerged in Lake Nasser

Is there more information about these events?

There's a Roman expedition against the kingdom of Meroe in 23BC, during the reign of Queen Amanishakhete/Amanishabhete. The name Faryan and similar words would seem to be related to the ethnonym Fur, who still live in western Sudan (indeed, they are the indigenous population of the troubled Darfur region, named for them). Can't find many details at the moment, but I'll keep a look out.

Farhad further states that he came across the designation "Faryan" in a "Persian legend about Alexander the great. There, the history of probably Petronius amalgamated with the romances of Alexander" and he refers to a book
The Shahnama Of Firdausi , By Arthur George Warner, Edmond Warner, Published 2001, Routledge, ISBN 0415245435

Interesting. Considering it's a Persian legend, I doubt it's particularly flattering to our all-conquering Macedonian. I've heard of the Shahnama, but seem to recall it dates from the 10th century AD or thereabouts.
