Sergey N. Akhiev (Saratov). Ptolemy Caesar in Propaganda of Triumviri

Modern works on history, devoted to propaganda war of 3432 B. C., tend to oppose the dictators son (Caesarion) to his adopted son (Octavian). The theory is that Antony connected Caesarions origin to his right to be a political successor of the dictator. However, acknowledgement of consanguinity did not entitle Caesarion to inherit his fathers property and clientele, that does not allow to talk about Caesarions (and Antony behind him) political claims. Antonys public speeches regarding Caesarions status, can be explained by events of 34 B. C. in Alexandria. The Donations of Alexandria was, actually, Antonys external policy, aimed at realization Ceasars plan on invading the East. Simultaneously, a new Egypt and Middle East internal managing structure was stated.

That is where the name of Caesarion appears. He was given a role of a co-ruler with Cleopatra in Egypt, and the status of a superior ruler, the king of kings, upon Cleopatras death. Its clear that the supreme ruler of East had to be of divine origin. While in the East there were no problems with Caesarions legitimacy, for the Romans he remained a bastard. This problem was solved by proclaiming Caesar, deified by the Roman Senate, as his farther. Thus it was aimed not at derogating Octavians status, but at acknowledging Caesarions official status as a superior ruler of Egypt and the countries of East.
