Unlike the Seleukid's the Ptolemies did not at first glance create numerous eye-catching cities. However evidence can be found of settlement of Macedonian Greeks in more rural areas, and Katja Mueller makes it plain that the Ptolemies did have a settlement policy, focusing her attention on the plethora of surviving demotic papyri, and analysing Hellenistic toponyms rather than relying on the literary sources.
