625 In fact, Syria was regained by Demetrius/Antigonus from 311 – 302 BCE, but then reconquered by Ptolemy in 302 BCE (Diodorus 20.113.1). Josephus (and perhaps Ps.-Hecataeus) omits reference to Ptolemy’s capture of Jerusalem, which took place in 312/11 or 302/1 BCE (see note to “city” at 1.210). Even a less hostile account of the event than that given by Agatharchides (1.209-11) might have marred the impression of friendship between the Judeans and the Ptolemaic regime that Josephus (and Ps.-Hecataeus?) wished to evoke.
