22. 1–5 on the eunuch Aristonicus (already mentioned at 17. 6) will fall under res Aegypti. All these three passages will therefore remain in their present position. There is a further and perhaps decisive argument in favour of dating the surrender of the rebels at Sais to autumn 185. According to the second Philae decree (see xxii. 16. 1–17. ) — who is probably Comanus (Peremans–van 't Dack, Prosopographica: Studia Hellenistica, 9 (Louvain, 1953), 27–28; cf. xxviii. 19. )—was reported to the synod held at Alexandria on 6 September 186 by Aristonicus.
