Patroclus was a leading official, a fleet commander of the Ptolemaic navy and admiral who served under Ptolemy II , best known for his activity during the Chremonidean War — BC. After the outbreak of the Chremonidean War, he led a diplomatic and military expedition to the Aegean Sea that expanded Ptolemaic control by establishing bases at Crete , Ceos , Thera , Attica and the Argolid. He may have been the defeated Ptolemaic commander at the Battle of Cos , which marked the end of Ptolemaic thalassocracy. Patroclus' early life is obscure; nothing is known of his family apart from the name of his father, Patron. Sotades was imprisoned in Alexandria , but managed to escape to the "island of Kaunos ", until Patroclus captured him and ordered him to be stuck in a leaden box and dropped him into the sea. The Chremonidean War , which broke out in late BC, provides the stage for the better known part of Patroclus' career.
