"He..."

  • That is Ptolemy IV. (4BC 868)

"...but he shall not be strengthened by it."

  • Indolent and dissolute, Ptolemy failed to make the best of his victory at Raphia. In the meantime, during the years 212-204 B.C., Antiochus III turned his energies to recovering his eastern territories, and campaigned successfully as far as the border of India. About 203 B.C., Ptolemy IV and his queen both died mysteriously, and were succeeded by a son, Ptolemy V Epiphanes (203-181 B.C.), who was only four or five years old. (4BC 868)
