Neolaus (gr. Neolaos) brother of Molon and Alexander, who revolted against Antiochus the Great. He commanded the left wing of the rebel army in the battle in which Molon was defeated. When all was lost he escaped from the battle, and went to Persis, where Alexander was. Having killed his mother, and the children of Molon, he slew himself upon their corpses, after persuading Alexander to follow his example. (Polyb. v. 53. § 11, 54. § 5.)
