A'ttalus

4. One of the chief officers in the infantry of Alexander. After the death of Alexander, B. C. 323, the infantry were dissatisfied with the arrangements made by Alexander's generals; and in the tumult which ensued, Attalus, according to Justin (13.3) sent persons to murder Perdiccas, though this is generally attributed to Meleager. He is again mentioned in the mutiny of the army at Triparadisus after the death of Perdiccas in B. C. 321. (Arrian, apud Phot. Cod. 92, p. 71b. 10.) It is evident, from both of these circumstances, that this Attalus must be a different person from the son of Andromenes.
