Egypt, Alexandria:

  • Bartimaeus, now known by his Egyptian byname, ‘Rekhyt’, is employed by the magician Ptolemy and quickly becomes his friend.
  • For two brief years Ptolemy devotes himself to understanding spirits. He sends Bart and his other djinn – Affa, Penrenutet and Teti – out to help the ordinary people with their problems.
  • Ptolemy becomes popular, and arouses the resentment of his cousin, the Egyptian king.[1]
