Abstract

The identification of Julia Crispina daughter of Berenicianus, mentioned in the Babatha archive, with the granddaughter of Queen Berenice is suggested in view of the uniqueness of the name of Julia Crispina's father--Berenicianus. Berenicianus was the name Queen Berenice gave to her son, probably with the intention of naming him after herself. The special position which Julia Crispina holds in the Babatha archive, her possible relations with Egypt, and her chronological and geographical circumstances all support this suggestion.
