On page 361 is a genealogical tree of the family of Herod, which succeeded the Hasmoneans. The family was of Idumean origin, its most distinguished representative being Herod the Great.

Frequent names, like Herod, Cypros, or Mariamne, are distinguished by Roman numerals. Herod the Great's wives are distinguished by letters in parentheses. Names of women are in italics.
