Archon of Pella
Archon (Ancient Greek: Ἄρχων; died 321 BC) was a Pellaean, appointed satrap of Babylonia after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC. He is probably the same as the son of Cleinias mentioned in the Indian expedition of Alexander. He perished in 321 in a fight against Docimus. An inscription in Delphi shows that Archon had taken part in both the Isthmian and Pythian Games of 333-332, winning some horse-races.
