Abstract: Polybius (V 63-65) describes the reorganisation of the Ptolemaic army by genos, by age and breaking up the old regiments before the battle of Raphia in 217 BC. By comparing his words with the papyrological sources, it appears that the translation of genos as "nationality" is problematic here and that the eponymous officers, who were military commanders, were replaced by new ones at that time.
