1. A Macedonian, father of Harpalus, and of Philip, the satrap of India. (Arr. Anab. 3.6.7, 5.8.5.) He was a brother of Derdas and of Phila, one of the many wives of Philip of Macedonia, and belonged to the family of the princes of Elymiotis. After the expulsion of those princes he seems to have resided at the court of Philip, though it would appear from an anecdote recorded by Plutarch that he hardly enjoyed consideration corresponding to his former rank. (Plut. Apophth. p. 179; Athen. 13.557c.; Droysen, Alexander, p. 43.)
