The author intends to prove the origins for this development in the propaganda of Ptolemy II, which had the aim of glorifying the king's sister Arsinoe II and also to introduce a more civilian style of kingship.
While most earlier scholars have dated this decree around the year 280 BC., Hazzard postulates the year 263 and investigates the role of the Ptolemaia festival during the Chremonidean war (267-262 BC).
In the past the exact date of Ptolemy's celebration has been debated and was usual set between 285/84 and 275/74 BC., but Hazzard suggests the year 262.

Mamilius Vitulus, arrived in Sicily with their legions, assessed the situation, and laid seige to Agrigentum at the height of the harvest, i.e.
This date is supported by Polybius 1.18.6 and Polybius 1.19.6, from which we may infer that the siege lasted around seven months, while Dio 11.10.6 tells us that after the fall of Agrigentum Postumius and Mamilius retired to Messana because it was winter.

 Eumenes I - Art History Online Reference and Guide
Eumenes was the adopted son and heir of Philetaerus, succeeding him upon his death in 263 BC, as ruler of Pergamon until his own death in 241 BC.
However upon his succession, Eumenes, perhaps with the encouragement of Ptolemy II who was at war with the Seleucids, revolted, defeating the Seleucid king Antiochus I near the Lydian capital of Sardis in 262 BC.
After the revolt from the Seleucids, there are no records of any further hostilities involving Pergamon during the Eumenes' rule, even though there continued to be conflict between the Seleucids and the Ptolemies, and even though the Gallatian Gauls were continually plundering throughout the region.
