Ptolemy was born in 367 as the son of Macdonian nobleman named Lagus and a woman Arsinoe, who may or may not have belonged to a minor branch of the Macdonian dynasty.Their son is called a youth friend of Alexander,but being older than the crown prince,his role can perhaps better be interpreted as that of some sort of adviser.
