Alexander (Aetolian general)

Alexander (Ancient Greek: Ἀλέξανδρος) of Aetolia, in conjunction with Dorimachus, put himself in possession of the town of Aegeira in Achaea during the Social War, in 220 BC. But the conduct of Alexander and his associates was so insolent and rapacious, that the inhabitants of the town rose to expel the small band of the Aetolians. In the ensuing contest Alexander was killed while fighting.[1][2]
