  • Ptolemy's parents descended from a Greek family and were living in Egypt and that he was a citizen of Rome. Cladius was a Roman name and Ptolemy was a greek name.
  • "Living in Alexandria must have been a great advantage to Ptolemy in his work (and perhaps his education)." He might have gotten some research from the Roman libraries.
  • Ptolemy was not married at all and did not have kids. His only family were his parents.
  • Ptolemy is most famous for his book "The Almagest." It was about astronomy and mathematics. He thought the earth was the center of the universe.
