A'coris (*)/Akoris), king of Egypt, entered into alliance with Evagoras, king of Cyprus, against their common enemy Artaxerxes, king of Persia, about B. C. 385, and assisted Evagoras with ships and money. On the conclusion of the war with Evagoras, B. C. 376, the Persians directed their forces against Egypt. Acoris collected a large army to oppose them, and engaged many Greek mercenaries, of whom he appointed Chabrias general. Chabrias, however, was recalled by the Athenians on the complaint of Pharnabazus, who was appointed by Artaxerxes to conduct the war. When the Persian army entered Egypt, which was not till B. C. 373, Acoris was already dead. (Diod. 15.2-4, 8, 9, 29, 41, 42; Theopom. apud Phot. cod. 176.) Syncellus (p. 76a. p. 257a.) assigns thirteen years to his reig
Anaxa'ndrides (*)Anacandri/dhs), an Athenian comic poet of the middle comedy, was the son of Anaxander, a native of Cameirus in Rhodes. Works Comedies He began to exhibit comedies in B. C. 376 (Marm. Par. Ep. 34), and 29 years later he was present, and probably exhibited, at the Olympic games celebrated by Philip at Dium. Aristotle held him in high esteem. (Rhet. 3.10-12; Eth. Eud. 6.10; Nicom. 7.10.) He is said to have been the first poet who made love intrigues a prominent part of comedy. He gained ten prizes, the whole number of his comedies being sixty-five. Though he is said to have destroyed several of his plays in anger at their rejection, we still have the titles of thirty-three. Dithyrambic Poetry Anaxandrides was also a dithyrambic poet, but we have no remains of his dithyrambs. Further Information Suidas, s.v. Athen. 9.374; Meineke; Bode.) [P.

confusion : Artaxerxes himself was a weak man; his mother, Parysatis, carried on her horrors at the court with truly oriental cruelty; and slaves and eunuchs wielded the reins of government. Tributary countries and satraps endeavoured, under such circumstances, to make themselves independent, and the exertions which it was necessary to make against the rebels exhausted the strength of the empire. Artaxerxes thus had to maintain a long struggle against Evagoras of Cyprus, from B. C. 385 to B. C. 376, and yet all he could gain was to confine Evagoras to his original possession, the town of Salamis and its vicinity, and to compel him to pay a moderate tribute. (Diod. 15.9.) At the same time he had to carry on war against the Cardusians, on the shores of the Caspian sea; and after his numerous army was with great difficulty saved from total destruction, he concluded a peace without gaining any advantages. (Diod. 15.9, 10; Plut. Art. 24.) His attempts to recover Egypt were unsuccessful,
Bas (*Ba=s), king of Bithynia, reigned fifty years, from B. C. 376 to 326, and died at the age of 71. He succeeded his father Boteiras, and was himself succeeded by his own son Zipoetes. He defeated Calantus, the general of Alexander, and maintained the independence of Bithynia. (Memnon, 100.20, ed. Orelli

Licinius Calvus Stolo or Calvus Stolo 4. C. LICINIUS CALVUS, surnamed STOLO, which he derived, it is said, from the care with which he dug up the shoots that sprung up from the roots of his vines. He brought the contest between the patricians and plebeians to a crisis and a happy termination, and thus became the founder of Rome's greatness. He was tribune of the people from B. C. 376 to 367, and was faithfully supported in his exertions by his colleague L. Sextius. The laws which he proposed were: 1. That in future no more consular tribunes should be appointed, but that consuls should be elected as in former times, one of whom should always be a plebeian. 2. That no one should possess more than 500 jugers of the public land, or keep upon it more than 100 head of large and 500 of small cattle. 3. A law regulating the affairs between debtor and creditor, which ordained that the interest already paid for borrowed money should be deducted from the capital, and that the remainder of the
ainst the Persians: the Athenians, however, recalled him on the remonstrance of Pharnabazus. (Diod. 15.29.) But other distinction awaited him, of a less equivocal nature, and in the service of his own country. The Lacedaemonians had sent out Pollis with a fleet of 60 ships to cut off from Athens her supplies of corn. Chabrias, being appointed to act against him with more than 80 triremes, proceeded to besiege Naxos, and, the Lacedaemonians coming up to relieve it, a battle ensued (Sept. 9, B. C. 376), in which the Athenians gained a decisive and important victory,--the first they had won with their own ships since the Peloponnesian war. According to Diodorus, the whole of the Lacedaemonian fleet might have been easily destroyed, had not Chabrias been warned by the recollection of Arginusae to look before everything to the saving of his own men from the wrecks. (Xen. Hell. 5.4. §§ 60, 61; Diod. 15.34, 35; Polyaen. 3.11; Dem. c. Aristocr. p. 686; Plut. Phoc. 6, Camill. I9, de Glor. Ath.

Crassus, Papi'rius 6. L. Papirius Crassus, consular tribune in B. C. 382, and again in B. C. 376. (Livy, 6.22 ; Diod. 15.71.)
Epi'crates (*)Epikra/ths), of Ambracia, was an Athenian comie poet of the middle comedy, according to the testimony of Athenaeus (x. p. 422f.), confirmed by extant fragments of his plays, in which he ridicules Plato and his disciples, Spensippus and Menedemus, and in which lie refers to the courtezan Lais, as being now far advanced in years. (Athen. 2.59d., xiii. p. 570b.) From these indications Meineke infers that he flourished between the 101st and 108th Olympiads (B. C. 376-348). Two plays of Epicrates, *)/Emporos and *)Antilai+/s are mentioned by Suidas (s. v.), and are quoted by Athenaeus (xiv. p. 655f., xiii. pp. 570, b., 605, e.), who also quotes his *)Amazo/nes (x. p. 422f.) and *Du/spratos (vi. p. 262d.), and informs us that in the latter play Epicrates copied some things from the *Du/spratos of Antiphanes. Aelian (Ael. NA 12.10) quotes the *Xoro/s of Epicrates. We have also one long fragment (Athen. 2.59c.) and two shorter ones (Athen. 11.782f.; Pollux, 4.121) from his unkn
Eubu'lus (*Eu)/boulos), an Athenian, the son of Euphranor, of the Cettian demus, was a very distinguished comic poet of the middle comedy, flourished, according to Suidas (s. v.), in the 101st Olympiad, B. C. 376/5. If this date be correct (and it is confirmed by the statement that Philip, the son of Aristophanes, was one of his rivals), Eubulus must have exhibited comedies for a long series of years; for he ridiculed Callimedon, the contemporary of Demosthenes. (Athen. 8.340d.) It is clear, therefore, that Suidas is wrong in placing Eubulus on the confines of the Old and the Middle Comedy. He is expressly assigned by the author of the Etymologicon Magnum (p. 451. 30) and by Ammonius (s. v. *e)/ndon) to the Middle Comedy, the duration of which begins very little before him, and extends to a period very little, if at all, after him. Works His plays were chiefly on mythological subjects. Several of them contained parodies of passages from the tragic poets, and especially from Euripi
Fa'bia the name of two daughters of the patrician M. Fabius Ambustus. The elder was married to Ser. Sulpicius, a patrician, land one of the military tribunes of the year B. C. 376, and the younger to the plebeian C. Licinius Stolo, who is said to have been urged on to his legislation by the vanity of his wife. Once, so the story runs, while the younger Fabia was staying with her sister, a lictor knocked at the door to announce the return of Ser. Sulpicius from the forum. This noise frightened the younger Fabia. who was unaccustomed to such things, and her elder sister ridiculed her for her ignorance. This, as well as the other honours which were paid to Servilius, deeply wounded the vanity of the younger Fabia, and her jealousy and envy made her unhappy. 11er father perceived that she was suffering from something, and contrived to elicit the cause of her grief. He then consoled her by telling her that shortly she should see the same honours and distinctions conferred upon her own hus
