Nicanor of Stageira
Nicanor (//; Greek: Nικάνωρ Nikā́nōr) of Stageira in Macedonia, was despatched by Alexander the Great to proclaim at the Olympic games of 324 BCE the decree for the recall of the exiles throughout the Greek cities.
It is perhaps the same person whom we find at an earlier period entrusted with the command of the fleet during the siege of Miletus. At least it seems probably that the Nicanor there mentioned is not the son of Parmenion; he may, however, be identical with the Nicanor who was satrap of Media under Antigonus.
