Philip III Arrhidaeus (Koine Greek: Φίλιππος Ἀρριδαῖος, Romanized: Philippos Arrhidaios) reigned as king of Macedon and Persia and Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt from after 11 June 323 BC until his death. He was a son of King Philip II of Macedon by Philinna of Larissa, and thus an elder half-brother of Alexander the Great. Named Arrhidaeus at birth, he assumed the name Philip when he ascended to the throne.
