Ptolemy IV took the throne in about 222 BC, using the Egyptian name Iwaennetjerwy-menkhwy Setepptah Userkare Sekhemankhamun, a name that means "Heir of the [two] Beneficent Gods, Chosen of Ptah, Powerful is the Soul of Re, Living Image of Amun".

Philammon (Polybius 15.33.11), appointed libyarch of Cyrene by Agathocles, and named as the murderer of Arsinoe III, was caught up in the general massacre of Agathocles' family, along with his wife and son; they may well have been related.
