627 For this translation of
κοινωνεῖν τὰ πράγματα, cf. Xenophon,
Hell. 2.3.17. On foreigners, including Judeans, in Ptolemaic civic administration see Barclay 1996a: 21-22. Josephus refers to a military role for Judeans in 2.44 but oddly fails to clarify what role, if any, Ezekias had in Ptolemaic government according to Ps.-Hecataeus (1.189).
