Xenophilus was the Macedonian phrourarch of Susa. During the war of Diadochi he defended Susa against the forces of Seleucus. Antigonus merely pretended friendship. What became of Xenophilus is unknown, but it is likely that Antigonus either kept him in honorable detention (as appears to be the case with Peucestas) or eliminated him.
