People

  1. Harpalus son of Machatas was an aristocrat of Macedon and boyhood friend of Alexander the Great in the 4th century BC. Being lame in a leg, and therefore exempt from military service, Harpalus did not follow Alexander in his advance within the Persian Empire but received nonetheless a post in Asia Minor. Alexander reportedly contacted him with a demand of reading material for his spare time. Harpalus sent his King theatrical plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, the history of Philistus and odes by Philoxenus and Telestes.

Harpalus son of Polemaeus from Beroea, was a Macedonian statesman, hieromnemon at Delphi and the chief of the ambassadors sent by Perseus to Rome in 172 BC, to answer the complaints of Eumenes II, king of Pergamon.
