Kallimachos was a member of an influential family, and he continued to be one of the most important officials in the government of Upper Egypt until at least 46 B.C.; several other inscriptions refer to him, including THI_6.   His son, also called Kallimachos, was honoured as a benefactor of the city of Thebes ( OGIS_194 ).


I Kallimachos, the kinsman of the king and epistrategos and strategos of the Indian and Red Sea, have come to the lady Isis and have made obeisance on behalf of my lord king, the god New Dionysos Philopator Philadelphos. Year 19, Pachon 9.
