(1) The son of Ptolemy, of Jerusalem, is named (Additions to Esther 11:1 ) as the interpreter (translator of the Rest of Esther into Greek). See ESTHER , THE REST OF .

(2) Brother of Menelaus, a Greek name said by Josephus ( Ant. , XII , v, 1) to have been assumed by Onias, the high priest in the hellenizing days of Antiochus Epiphanes, as the Jewish name Jesus was changed to Jason. When Menelaus was summoned to Antioch (2 Maccabees 4:29 ) on a charge of malversation, he left Lysimachus as his deputy in the priesthood at Jerusalem. Lysimachus robbed the temple and caused an insurrection in which he met his death beside the treasury (2 Maccabees 4:42 ). The name of Lysimachus does not appear in the narrative of these events given by Josephus
