Androni'cus of OLYNTHUS

*)Andro/nikos), of OLYNTHUS, who is probably the same as the son of Agerrhus mentioned by Arrian (Arr. Anab. 3.23), was one of the four generals appointed by Antigonus to form the military council of the young Demetrius, in B. C. 314. He commanded the right wing of Demetrius' army at the battle of Gaza in 312, and after the loss of the battle, and the subsequent retreat of Demetrius, was left in command of Tyre. He refused to surrender the city to Ptolemy, who, however, obtained possession of it, but spared the life of Andronicus, who fell into his hands. (Diod. 19.69, 86.)
