There is a longer article about this by

Joachim Friedrich Quack : Les mages égyptianisés? Remarks on some surprising points in supposedly Magusean texts. - In: Journal of Near Eastern Studies - JNES 65. - 2006. - pp. 267 - 282.

From the end of this article:
Quote:
"... There is one other, more likely, possibility, however, one more in keeping with the traditional chronological models for these arcane teachings. The presence of a Persian population in Egypt did not end with the conquest by Alexander the Great. Rather, there are persons attested in papyrological documents, called in Greek [Persaμ thÅÍ ejpigonhÅÍ] and mty msï n Kmy in Demotic, “Persians born in Egypt”. In my opinion, these Persians are the most plausible candidates for the authorship of the texts written in the name of Zooarster and Ostanes and, at the same time, containing so many Egyptian influences. After having lived for centuries in Egypt, it is hardly surprising that this originally Persian population had absorbed so much Egyptian thought and tradition that Egyptian elements in many of the texts are now much easier to detect than any Persian ones, except for the names of the authors.
In conclusion, I believe that a great deal of the pseudo-Zoroastrian and pseudo-Ostanean literature available to us may possibly reflect the cultural contact of Persians with their Egyptian milieu that began in the Achaemenid period but that continued for centuries thereafter."

Maybe also of interest, but I do not know / have:

Carsten Colpe : Sethian and Zoroastrian Ages of the World. - In: The Rediscovery of Gnosticism - Proceedings of the International Conference on Gnosticism at Yale, New Haven, Connecticut - March 28-31, 1978. - Vol. 2. - Studies in the History of Religions - 41. - Leiden : Brill, 1981. - pp. 540 - 552.

Greetings, Lutz.
