A lot of the information on this page is from The Ancient Egypt Site (AES below), the site Ancient Egypt (AE below), and from Wikipedia. These sites have a lot of information and consistent time lines, although they differ. All the hieroglyphic names are from the AE website. The times are mainly from Wikipedia.

This period includes part of the Argead Dynasty (from Alexander the Great to Alexander IV), and the Ptolemaic Dynasties.

From the Ptolemaic Kingdom entry in Wikipedia:

The Ptolemaic Kingdom was an ancient Hellenistic state based in Egypt. It was founded in 305 BCE by Ptolemy I Soter, a companion of Alexander the Great, and lasted until the death of Cleopatra VII in 30 BCE. Ruling for nearly three centuries, the Ptolemies were the longest and most recent Egyptian dynasty of ancient origin.

Alexander the Great conquered Persian-controlled Egypt in 332 BCE during his campaigns against the Achaemenid Empire. After Alexander's death in 323 BCE, his empire quickly unraveled amid competing claims by the diadochi, his closest friends and companions. Ptolemy, a Macedonian Greek who was one of Alexander's most trusted generals and confidants, won control of Egypt from his rivals and declared himself pharaoh. Alexandria, a Greek polis founded by Alexander, became the capital city and a major center of Greek culture, learning, and trade for the next several centuries. Following the Syrian Wars with the Seleucid Empire, a rival Hellenistic state, the Ptolemaic Kingdom expanded its territory to include eastern Libya, the Sinai, and northern Nubia.

Following is the list of Egyptian Pharaohs as well as I could determine it:
