Calmet has remarked that among the Phoenicians, Persians, Arabians, and Romans, the title of father was given to certain officers of state. The Roman emperors gave the name of father to the prefects of the Praetorium, as appears by the letters of Constantine to Ablavius. The caliphs gave the same name to their prime ministers.

And Diodorus Siculus remarks that the teachers and counsellors of the kings of Egypt were chosen out of the priesthood.
