Ptolemaic Kingdom, Ptolemy II Philadelphos, 285 - 246 B.C., Gaza, Philistia
Gaza was one of five Philistine cities along the southern coast that successfully resisted Israelite conquest until c. 150 B.C. Alexander Jannaeus destroyed the city after a revolt c. 96 B.C. It was rebuilt as a Roman city by Gabinius. It is the setting for Philip's conversion of an Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26). "Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Gaza and for four I will not revoke the punishment .. I will turn my hand against Ekron and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish says the Lord God.."(Amos 1:6-8)
