Alexon was an ancient Greek mercenary from Achaea, who served in
the Carthaginian garrison at Lilybaeum while it was besieged by the
Romans in 250 BC, during the First Punic War. During this siege
some of the Gallic mercenaries engaged in the service of the
Carthaginians began planning to betray the fortress into the hands
of the Romans. But Alexon, who had on a former occasion saved the
town of Agrigentum from a similar attempt of treacherous
mercenaries, now acted in the same spirit, and gave information of
the plot to the Carthaginian commander Himilco.
