Μένης), a citizen of Pella, son of Dionysius, was one of the officers of Alexander the Great; and after the battle of Issus (B. C. 333) was admitted by the king into the number of his body-guards, in the room of Balacrus, who was promoted to the satrapy of Cilicia. In B. C. 331, after Alexander had occupied Susa, he sent Menes down to the Mediterranean to take the government of Syria, Phoenicia, and Cilicia, entrusting him at the same time with 3000 talents, a portion of which he was to transmit to Antipater for his war with the Lacedaemonians and the other confederate states of Greece. Apollodorus of Amphipolis was joined with him in this command. (Arr. Anab. 2.12, 3.16; Diod. 17.64; Curt. 5.1; Freinsh. ad loc.)
