Hi,

I'm looking for any possible info and the Ptolemaic fort in Jerusalem described by Josephus. I've found lots of books and articles about the later Seleucid Akra and Hasmonean Baris, but close to nothing about this earlier Ptolemaic fortification. I know the Antonia fortress was apparently built over its remains but not much more than that.

Thanks a million.

I don't know much at all about this period, but I did a quick search on google books (using keywords ptolemaic jerusalem fort) and found this book:
The Armies of the Hasmonaeans and Herod By Israel Shatzman.

Page 37 has a short description and a footnote (6) that seems to address your question?

link to book on google books

link to search result - maybe more info to be found?

Thanks anneke, this is precisely the kind of thing I was looking for, especially the sources mentioned in the footnote. Should have thought of Google Books myself ... Embarassed

You're welcome.

Google really has done a great job in creating these types of search engines haven't they?

Indeed. You've got to love the internet, nothing's esoteric any more.
