The Phylakes were an elite Greco-Roman paramilitary force who served as bounty hunters for Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII in the final years of the Ptolemaic dynasty.[1]

In 48 BCE, they were given orders to hunt the Medjay Bayek of Siwa after he assassinated the Phylakitai of Alexandria, Gennadios.[2][3] Each member, with the exception of Abar, patrolled separate regions of Egypt throughout the Alexandrine Civil War, but all were ultimately slain by Bayek who turned the hunt against them.[3]



  • Phylakes is the plural of Ancient Greek φύλαξ (phylax), meaning 'watcher, guard, sentinel'.[4]
