Antipater (397 -319)

Antipater was a senior Macedonian general under both Philip II and Alexander the Great. He outlived Alexander, and played an important role in holding his empire together until his death of natural causes in 319 BC. He was a conservative Macedonian, apparently unenthusiastic for Alexander's adventures in Asia, but loyal to the royal family. He was also a close friend and correspondent of Aristotle.
