Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysos, 80 - 58 B.C. and 55 - 51 B.C.
|Ptolemaic| |Egypt|, |Ptolemaic| |Kingdom| |of| |Egypt,| |Ptolemy| |XII| |Neos| |Dionysos,| |80| |-| |58| |B.C.| |and| |55| |-| |51| |B.C.|, Ptolemy XII was a weak and unpopular ruler. He was awarded the belittling title Auletes - the flute player. Deposed by his own subjects in 58 B.C., he regained his throne with Roman assistance. His daughter, the famous Cleopatra VII, was the last Ptolemaic ruler of Egypt. Minted under Roman supervision. In about 58 BC, the tetradrachms of Ptolemy XII underwent a substantial debasement. From a standard of c. 90% silver, coins were struck with debased silver. Hazzard firmly notes 33%, although RPC suggests 40-45% is the correct value. Specific gravity analysis confirm that Hazzard's figure is correct.
