Eupolemus (in Greek Eυπόλεμoς; lived 4th century BC) was one of the generals of Cassander; he was sent by him in 314 BC to invade Caria, but was surprised and taken prisoner by Ptolemy, a general who commanded that province for Antigonus.[1] He must have been liberated again directly, as the next year (313 BC) we find him commanding the forces left by Cassander in Greece, when he moved northward against Antigonus.[2]
