12. Son of Chrysennus, an officer high in the confidence of Ptolemy Philopator.
He had been for some time on friendly terms with Cleomenes, whom he visited during his confinement; but accidentally betrayed to the latter the true intentions of the king of Egypt in regard to him, and thus gave rise to his attempted insurrection. On the first breaking out of the tumult Ptolemy, having issued forth from the palace, was instantly attacked and put to death by three of the friends of Cleomenes, B. C. 220. (Plut. Cleom
. 36, 37.)
