Crinon

Κρίνων), an officer of Philip V. of Macedon, joined Leontius and Megaleas in their treason, and took part in the tumult at Limnaea in Acarnania, in which they assailed Aratus and threatened his life, irritated as they were by the successful campaign of Philip in Aetolia, B. C. 218. For this offence Crinon and Megaleas were thrown into prison till they should find security for a fine of twenty talents. The fine was confirmed, on their trial, by the king's council, and Crinon was detained in prison, while Leontius became security for Megaleas. (Plb. 5.15, 16.)
