1 Ptolemy of Alorus was the husband of Eurynoe, daughter of Amyntas III and Eurydice (Justin 7.4.5, 7), hence the use of τὸν ἀδελφόν. He may well have been the son of an Amyntas since the name was common in Macedonia. After Alexander's death he took the regency for Perdiccas (Aeschin. 2.29) and married the Queen dowager Eurydice (sch. ibid.; Justin 7.4.7). If he was king, no coins were issued in his name. (See Beloch （2）, 3.2.67.) See also Plut. Pelopidas 27; Marsyas in Athenaeus Deip. 14.629d.
