PostSubject: Native Egyptians continued having a role in Egypt   Mon 18 Jul 21:36

Native Egyptians continued having a role in Egypt, yet a small one in the Ptolemaic government mostly in lower posts and outnumbered the foreigners. During the reign of the Ptolemaic Pharaohs, many Jews were imported from neighboring Palestine by the hundred thousands for being renowned fighters[citation needed], given that their homeland was on the frontier between Egypt and the Seleucid Empire and established an important presence in Alexandria.[citation needed] Other foreign groups settled during this time even Galatian mercernaries, also fierce and skilled warriors, were first invited in the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus in 276 BCE. The Galatians are thought to have been resettled in the Faiyum region. Other Celts from Gaul and eastern Europe subsequently served in the armies of the Ptolemaic Dynasty. Even the royal bodyguard of Cleopatra VII contained a company of 300 Gallic warriors, a contingent given to her by Gaius Julius Caesar in 48 BCE.[citation needed]
