Such was the case of the Jews of Alexandria under Ptolemy Philometor. Chapter Four 1. When Demetrius, as we have told above, fell in battle, Alexander took possession of the kingdom of Syria and sent a letter to Ptolemy Philometor, in which he asked his daughter's hand. He pointed out that now, after he managed to regain his father's kingdom and God's mercy to be recognized in it after defeating Demetrius, would be appropriate to enter into relationship with him and that he in all thinks to show himself worthy of the future his father in law. Ptolemy told him that willingly accepts his proposal, because he is happy that his father's kingdom back to him, and promised to give him his daughter; at the same time he proposed to Alexander go to Ptolemais, where Pharaoh was going to bring my daughter. There Ptolemy wanted to hold his daughter from the border of Egypt and there to celebrate her wedding. By sending this letter, Ptolemy quickly went to his daughter Cleopatra to Ptolemais, where he met with Alexander, according to persuasion who left to meet him, gave him a daughter and gave her a dowry so much silver and gold, as befitted the king.
