Perdiccas (general)

Perdiccas (in Greek Περδικκας; died 321 BC) was one of the generals who held a subordinate command under Eumenes in the war against Antigonus, 321 BC. He was preparing to desert to the enemy, when Eumenes became apprised of his project, and sent Phoenix against him, who surprised his camp in the night, took him prisoner, and brought him before Eumenes, who caused him to be put to death.1
