Aristomachos of Argos
Aristomachos of Argos was a general of the Achaean League in Ancient Greece who served only for a year, 228 - 227 BC. His father Aristomachos the Elder and his brother Aristippos had both been tyrants of the city of Argos, and after the latter's death in 235 BC the younger brother became tyrant himself. In 229 BC he was convinced to resign by Aratus of Sicyon and let his city join the Achaean League. As a reward, he was elected strategos of the League, but later betrayed them. Captured by Aratus, he was tortured and executed in 223 BC.
