), commander of the Cretans engaged in the service of Antiochus III. in B. C. 214.
He and his men were entrusted with the protection of a fort near the acropolis of Sardis during the war against Achaeus, the son of Andromachus.
He allowed himself to be drawn into a treacherous plan for delivering up Achaeus to Antiochus, by Bolis, who received a large sum of money from Sosibius, the agent of Ptolemy, for the purpose of assisting Achaeus to escape.
But the money was divided between Bolis and Cambylus
, and instead of setting Achaeus free, they communicated the plan to Antiochus, who again rewarded them richly for delivering Achaeus up to him. (Plb. 8.17
