Daniel 11:8

And shall also carry captive into Egypt their gods, with their
princes
Jerom relates, from the historians he conversed with, that Ptolemy carried captive with him into Egypt two thousand five hundred images; among which were many of the idols which Cambyses, when he conquered Egypt, carried from thence; and Ptolemy replacing them in their proper temples, gained him the affection of his people the Egyptians, who were much addicted to idolatry; hence they gave him the name of Euergetes, that is, "the benefactor": and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold;
the same writer reports, that he brought with him out of Syria, and the places he conquered, forty thousand talents of silver, and precious vessels; vessels of gold and silver, a prodigious number: and he shall continue more years than the king of the north;
according to the canon of Ptolemy, this king of Egypt reigned twenty five years; and, as Dr. Prideaux F4 observes, outlived Seleucus king of Syria four years.
