Φοῖνιξ), historical.

1. A Theban, who was one of the leaders in the insurrection against Alexander, on which account the king, when he appeared before the city, sent to demand his surrender, together with Prothytas. The Thebans treated the request with derision, and demanded in return that Alexander should give up to them Philotas and Antipater. (Plut. Alex. 11.)
