Philip V (Greek Φίλιππος Δ΄) was king of Macedon from 221 BC to 179 BC.
His reign was occupied in the vain struggle to maintain the old Macedonian supremacy in the Balkan peninsula, which became hopeless after the intervention of Rome, during the First Macedonian War, and the decisive battle of Cynoscephalae (197 BC), during the Second Macedonian War.
He was succeeded by his eldest son Perseus, who ruled as the last king of Macedon.
