Alexander's Egypt: The People

The novel Toga inthe Wind is about a young Alexander the Alabarch who was the epitropos for Antonia Minor the niece of Augustus and daughter of Marcus Antony. The Greek word epitropos would possibly translate into Latin as procurator which meant that Alexander had administrative oversight of Antonia Minor's extensive properties in Egypt in the early first century, especially around Lake Moeris in the Arsinoite Nome.
