Pothinus (c. 90s BCE – 47 BCE), also known as The Scorpion, was a eunuch and regent for Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII of the Ptolemaic dynasty. He was also a member of the Order of the Ancients during the reign of Cleopatra.

Pothinus was killed by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa in 47 BCE, during the Battle of the Nile, alongside his war elephant.

Personality and characteristics

Despite being a member of the Order of the Ancients, Pothinus was not sadistic nor hungry for power, even acknowledging to Bayek that the Order went too far in Siwa. Pothinus had a genuine desire for Egypt to be peaceful and prosperous but the way he chose to do that left much to be desired.
