PATROCLUS pə trō’ kləs (Πατρόκλος). Father of Nicanor, the Syrian general engaged against the Jews during the Maccabean revolt in 166 b.c. (1 Macc 3:38; 2 Macc 8:9). (See Nicanor.) The father of the ill-fated general is otherwise unknown. His name derives from the Homeric hero Patroclos, the friend of Achilles whom Hector killed.
