Polycles

Πολυκλῆς).

1. A Macedonian general who was left in the command of Thessaly by Antipater, when the latter crossed over into Asia to the support of Craterus, B. C. 321. The Aetolians took advantage of the absence of Antipater to invade Locris, and laid siege to Amphissa ; whereupon Polycles hastened to its relief, but was totally defeated, his army utterly destroyed, and he himself slain. (Diod. 18.38.)
