RE: Ptolemaiida & Barytheria

I found a reference to these two placental orders in a text about the Fayum

Is there any list member with more information about these groups, such as
if they're afrotheres, what did they look like and what is the reason for
placing them in seperate orders?
According to Gheerbrant et al. (2005), barytheriids are proboscideans more
derived than Phosphatotherium, Daouitherium and numidotheriids, but less so
than other taxa. So yes, they would be afrotheres.
