Asclepiodo'rus

*)Asklhpio/dwros).

1. A Macedonian, son of Timander, was one of the generals of Alexander the Great, and after the conquest of Syria was appointed by Alexander satrap of that country. In B. C. 328, he led reinforcements from Syria to Alexander in eastern Asia, and there became involved in the conspiracy which was formed by Hermolaus against the life of the king. (Arrian, Arr. Anab. 4.13, Ind. 18; Curtius, 7.10, 8.6.) He seems to be the same as the one whom Antigonus, in B. C. 317, made satrap of Persia (Diod. 19.48); but he must be distinguished from an Asclepiodorus, a general of Cassander, mentioned by Diodorus. (xix 60.)
