By time of this inscription, the dioiketes was probably a less important official than the well-known Apollonios during the reign of Ptolemy II; see J.D.Thomas, "The epistrategos in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt: The Ptolemaic epistrategos", page 28 ( Google Books ). This statue of the dioiketes was placed in the temple of the Egyptian goddess Bastet, together with a statue of the king.
This statue of Apollonios son of Theon, one of the king's friends and the dioiketes, was set up by his brother Ptolemaios son of Apollonios, one of the diadochoi, on account of his goodwill towards king Ptolemaios and queen Kleopatra, the gods Epiphaneis and Eucharistoi, and their children.
