Shipping records of the Ptolemies would have been invaluable to historians nowadays. Nothing that old is without value.

To be fair, he was asking for a Biblical reference saying Adam and Eve were Semites, not Jesus was a Jew.

Which is even funnier when you think about it, since if they were then I suppose we all are.
