I don’t know why I expected historical accuracy, or even authenticity, from this show, but this was pretty awful even for Hollywood. Why did the writers think that Cleopatra was Egyptian, or that she would be entombed in a pyramid? The last pyramids in Egypt were built over a millennia and a half before she came to power. And the Ptolemies were Greek, not Egyptian, with Ptolemy I being one of Alexander the Great’s generals who created a successor state in Egypt and the Levant upon Alexander’s death. It’s like the only thing the writers know about Egypt is the story of Exodus bullshit and not a history that spanned three millennia.
