Xenarchos was a Greek general of the
Achaean League in
Ancient Greece who served only for a year from 175-174 BC.
Xenarchus was sent to Rome as an ambassador by the Achaeans, for the
purpose of renewing their alliance with the Romans, and of
superintending the progress of the negotiations with reference to the
Lacedaemonians. He was surprised into affixing his signature to the
agreement drawn up on the latter subject at the suggestion of
Flamininus. He found means to enter into friendly relations with
Perseus of Macedon
Perseus of Macedon and it was when he was general of the Achaeans (174
BC), that Perseus got his letter about the runaway slaves of the
Achaeans laid before the assembly. His brother Archon was three
times strategos in 184/83, 172/71 and 171/70 BC.
