PTOLEMAUS.  The German form of Ptolemy (q.v.), meaning "war-like," or "mighty in war."  Greek Ptolemaios.  Latin Ptolemæus. (The Standard Dictionary of Facts, Ruoff, 1919)

... Pliny, in his Natural History, tells us that Alexander was sleeping by his friend Ptolemaus who was dying of a poisoned wound.  In his dream a dragon appeared, holding a certain plant in its mouth, and saying that the plant would cure Ptolemaus.  The soldiers were sent out to seek the plant and found it in the place seen in the dream.  Ptolemaus was healed by its use, as well as many others suffering from the same affection... (The Psychology of Dreams, Walsh, 1920)
