Philippus I.

*Fi/lippos), king of MACEDONIA, son of Argaeus, was the sixth king, if we follow the lists of Dexippus and Eusebius, but the third, according to Herodotus and Thucydides, who, not reckoning CARANUS and his two immediate successors (Coenus and Thurimas or Turimmas). look upon Perdiccas I. as the founder of the monarchy. Eusebius assigns to Philip I. a reign of 38 years, Dexippus one of 35. Neither statement appears to rest on any positive testimony; and Justin tells us that his death was an untimely one. He left a son, named Aeropus, who succeeded him. (Hdt. 8.137-139; Thuc. 2.100; Just. 7.2; Clint. F. H. vol. ii. p. 221.)
