Example text

Any cult statue of Sarapis at Canopus in the late fourth century might well be influenced by the Alexandrian iconography, if that statue should be dated early in the reign of Ptolemy I; if it belongs late in his reign, Heraclides may have been the first to articulate the connection with Pluto. It is even possible that he was thinking of a statue of Pluto which he had seen at Sinope; if so, the Alexandrian image made after Heraclides' death may in fact derive from Sinope. In dealing with a period as poorly documented in general as the early Hellenistic age is, it is dangerous to emphasize an argument from silence.

However, during the reign of Ptolemy I there was not necessarily any clear connection between the Museum of which Demetrius was a member and the Great Serapeum of Alexandria. Demetrius wrote hymns in honor of Sarapis, but that hardly implies that he was hostile to the cult at Memphis. Third, it is not perfectly clear that the philosopher really is Demetrius. However, no other candidate has been proposed who could be juxtaposed with Sarapis as satisfactorily as Demetrius. Fourth, even if it is Demetrius, the date may be later than Ptolemy I, since any of his successors (except Ptolemy II) may well have included Demetrius, as the founder of the Library and Museum, in a group of poets and scholars.

Weber, Drei Untersuchungen zur Aegyptisch-griechischen Religion (Heidelberg, 19II), pp. 6-8, stressed the existence of a temple of Isis and Osiris at Rhacotis before Alexander. It may even have been a shrine of the Memphis bull-god Osiris-Apis, but only general probability and wishful thinking, rather than evidence, prompt the suggestion. 2I, 33, 5 : 1\ 8V'1jT~ q:nJCHC; ouX e:i'ipe:v &'7tlxyye:rAon, a phrase appearing only in MS A. 3 U. 4: Meisenheim am Glan, 1962), p.
