 THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD
Alexander the Great had initiated a policy in which he portrayed himself as an Egyptian ruler, effectively grafting the new administration on to the existing political and religious structure, and this policy appears to have been continued by his Ptolemaic successors with varying degrees of enthusiasm and success.
Ptolemy I Soter I (ruled 305-285 BC) was the founder of the Ptolemaic line, and he took the Egyptian throne after the death of Alexander IV.
During the Ptolemaic period and the subsequent Roman period, Alexandria was a thriving and cosmopolitan city, and by the mid-first century BC had a population of around half a million, including substantial numbers of Greeks and Jews.

  When Were the Sabbatical Years?
Since Alexander took Gaza in November 332 BC, connecting Alexander's grant to a sabbatical year suggests that 332/331 BC was a sabbatical year, a date that is again in harmony with Zuckermann.
According to Zuckermann, 164/163 BC was a sabbatical year; according to Wacholder it was 163/162 BC.
A date of 134 BC for the murder cannot be made to fit with his sabbatical dates without once again assuming an error in the source material.
