  • Alexander (in Greek Αλέξανδρος; died 220 BC) was brother of Molon. On the accession of the Seleucid king Antiochus III, afterwards called the Great, in 223 BC, he entrusted Alexander with the government of the satrapy of Persis and Molon received Media. Antiochus was then only fifteen years of age, and this circumstance together with the fact that Hermeias, a crafty intriguer whom every one had to fear, was all-powerful at his court, induced the two brothers to form the plan of causing the upper satrapies of the kingdom to revolt. It seems to have been the secret wish of Hermeias to see the king involved as many difficulties as possible, and it was on his advice that the war against the rebels was entrusted to men without courage and ability. In 220 BC, however, Antiochus himself undertook the command. Molon was deserted by his troops, and to avoid falling into the hands of the king, put an end to his own life. All the leaders of the rebellion followed his example, and one of them, who escaped to Persis, killed Molon's mother and children, persuaded Alexander to put an end to his life, and at last killed himself upon the bodies of his friends.

  • Al momento della salita al trono del re seleucide Antioco III il Grande (223 a.C.), Alessandro ricevette dal re il governo della satrapia di Persia e suo fratello Molone ricevette la Media. Antioco era solo quindicenne, inoltre il suo primo ministro, il potente Ermia, era il vero detentore del controllo dell'impero. Tutto ciò indusse i due fratelli ad insorgere contro il re, unitamente ad altri satrapi delle province orientali. Seconda una congettura, riportata anche da Polibio, il volere di Ermia era quello di creare il maggior numero di difficoltà al giovane re, per questo fece inviare contro i ribelli generali senza coraggio e capacità militari. Nel 220 a.C. Antioco stesso prese il comando delle operazioni. Molone fu abbandonato dalle sue truppe e si suicidò, in modo da non cadere vivo nelle mani del re. Tutti gli altri capi della ribellione seguirono l'esempio. Uno solo fuggì verso la Persia e, dopo aver ucciso la madre ed il figlio di Molone, riuscì a persuadere anche Alessandro a porre fine volontariamente alla sua vita. (it)
  • 亞歷山大 (希臘語 Αλέξανδρος; ?-前220年)為塞琉古帝國國王安條克三世在位時的將軍,並被任命為波西斯總督。當前223年安條克三世即位,他分別任命亞歷山大和亞歷山大的兄弟莫倫為帝國重要行省的總督,但亞歷山大他們相當厭惡安條克的重臣赫米亞斯,赫米亞斯善耍陰謀使人相當忌憚,且在當時權貴一時。兩人因而聯手發動叛亂。 赫米亞斯似乎暗自希望安條克三世陷入許多危機,向安條克三世推薦無能的將軍平亂,使叛亂擴大以至於失去整個巴比倫尼亞和美索不達米亞。安條克三世被迫親自率軍平亂,並在阿波羅尼亞戰役中擊敗莫倫和兄弟涅歐勞斯(Neolaus),而莫倫在戰場上自殺,倖存的涅歐勞斯逃至波斯亞歷山大處後,未免族人落入安條克三世手中,把母親與莫倫孩子殺掉後,並勸亞歷山大也跟著自己自殺,俱亡。 (zh)
  • Александр (ум. 220 до н. э.) — брат сатрапа Мидии Молона. Когда в 223 до н. э. на престол государства Селевкидов взошёл Антиох III, Александр стал сатрапом Персии, а его брат — Мидии. Тогда царю было 15 лет, и вся власть находилась в руках сановника Гермия. Зная ситуацию при дворе, братья подняли восстание. К 220 до н. э. под их властью находились все земли к востоку от Тигра. Но в этом году Антиох возглавил войска, и в генеральном сражении часть армии Молона перешла на сторону Селевкида. Мятежник покончил с собой, а его труп распяли на кресте. Находившийся в Персии Александр, узнав о случившимся, приказал убить свою мать и детей Молона, после чего повторил поступок брата. (ru)
