 DBM - Antigonid Successor
Xystophoroi: Although Antigonos was usually well supplied with horse, his initial force in 321 BC had just 2000 horse, and Demetrios once had a force of 15000 foot and just 400 horse, hence the minima of just two elemnts in total, one of which is Xystophoroi.
Over 9000 are recorded in the phalanx at Paraitakeni; Demetrios in 314 BC had some 10000 mercenaries compared to just 2000 Macedonian foot, and had reputedly 15000 merceanries of all sorts by 302 BC, the vast majority, if not all of which, were Greeks.
Pre 315 BC Naval: Antigonos had a small fleet at Byzantium in 318 BC, including transports (seemingly small boats) filled with archers, slingers and other psiloi; the larger vessels had marines picked from the bravest of his infantry ('hypaspists').

 DBM - Western Asiatic Successor
This list covers the armies of those early Hellenistic Successors who, after Alexander's death in 323 BC, were mainly based in Asia to the west of Babylon, but excluding Antigonos from 320 BC, Eumenes and Ptolemy, who all have their own separate lists.
The list also covers the army of Antigonos himself from 333 BC until 321 BC when he assumed control of the remnants of the Asian portion of the Royal Macedonian army.
Antigonos' local generals likely included mecenaries too, but probably had many local troops (Ptolemaios/Polemaios' force in 314 BC certainly did so, and epigraphic sources indicate this was normal practice).
