Macedonian Kingdom, Philip III Arrhidaeus and Alexander IV, 323 - 317 B.C.

Probably struck under Laomedon, governor of Syria. Laomedon was banished by Philip II for joining the intrigues of prince Alexander. After Philip's death, Laomedon was held by Alexander in the highest honor and made a general. In Asia, because he could speak Persian, Laomedon was put in charge of the Persian captives. After Alexander's death in 323 B.C., Laomedon was made governor of Syria. He retained this position after the second partition at Triparadisus in 321 B.C. Not long after, Ptolemy offered Laomedon a large sum of money in exchange control of Phoenicia and Coele-Syria. When Laomedon refused, Ptolemy sent Nicanor with an army to invade Syria. Laomedon was captured and sent to Egypt. However, he escaped and joined Alcetas in Pisidia. Laomedon probably took part in the war between Alcetas, Attalus, and the other surviving partisans of Perdiccas against Antigonus, and shared in their defeat by Antigonus in 320 B.C. His fate is not recorded.
