polytheist extractions

Diodoros Sikeliotis, Library of History 20.100.4

“But as for Ptolemy, they wished to repay his favor with an even greater one, and sent sacred ambassadors to Africa to ask the oracle of Ammon whether he advised the Rhodians to honor Ptolemy as a god. When the oracle had given its assent they consecrated a square enclosure in the city, which they called the Ptolemaeion, and constructed on each of its sides a gallery 200 meters long. They also rebuilt the theater, the parts of the wall that had collapsed and the other buildings that had been destroyed, all far more beautifully than before.” –¬†Diodoros Sikeliotis, Library of History 20.100.4
