2. A Macedonian, son of Andromenes, and brother of Attalus and Amyntas, the officers of Alexander. He probably served in the division of the phalanx, commanded by his brother Amyntas, as we find him taking the command of it at the battle of Arbela during his brother's absence. On this occasion his division was one of those which bore the chief brunt of the battle. (Arr. Anab. 3.11, 14.) In B. C. 330 he was accused, together with his brothers, of having been concerned in the conspiracy of Philotas; but the vigorous defence of Amyntas before the Macedonian army procured their joint acquittal. (Arr. 3.27; Curt. 7.1.10, 2.1-10.)
