Nicarchus

2. One of the generals of Antiochus. We find him serving in Coelesyria in the war between Antiochus and Ptolemaeus. Together with Theodotus he superintended the siege of Rabbatamana, and with the same general headed the phalanx at the battle of Raphia [ANTIOCHUS, Vol. I. p. 196]. (Polvb. 5.69, 71, 79, 83, 85.)
