When describing how the urns of Ptolemy and Arsinoe were shown to the public, he notes that Arsinoe's contained only spices, and that during the funeral this fact became apparent and somehow alerted the public to the murder.
The general opinion of modern scholarship is to suppose that Arsinoe was killed by Sosibius and Agathocles after the death of Ptolemy IV, and that the delay in announcing Ptolemy's death was used to effect this murder.
