Straton

3. King or dynast of Sidon, at the same period, was distinguished for his luxury and voluptuousness, in which he sought to vie with his contemporary Nicocles, king of Salamis (Athen. 12.531). After the conquest of Phoenicia, he was deposed by Alexander on account of the support he had given to Dareius, and his throne conferred upon Abdalonimus, a man in humble circumstances. (Curt. 4.1.16; Diod. 17.47, erroneously re presents him as king of Tyre.)
