various occasions as ambassador to Thessaly, Macedonia, Molossia, Thesprotia, Italy, and Sicily (Andoc. c. Alcib. § 41); and, although he was frequently attacked for his political opinions (c. Alcib. § 8), he yet maintained his ground, until in B. C. 415, when he became involved in the charge brought against Alcibiades for having profaned the mysteries and mutilated the Hermae.
It appeared the more likely that Andocides was an accomplice in the latter of these crimes, which was believed to be eries (peri\ tw=n musthri/wn), On the Peace with Lacedaemon (peri\ th=s pro\s *Lakedaimoni/ons ei)rh/nhs) --, which are undoubtedly genuine, there is a fourth Against Alcibiades (kata\ *)Alkibia/dou), said to have been delivered by Andocides in B. C. 415; but it is in all probability spurious, though it appears to contain genuine historical matter. Taylor ascribed it to Phaeax, while others think it more probable that it is the work of some of the later rhetoricians, with whom the accusation o

His chief play was *)Ixqu=s, " the Fishes," in which, as far as can be gathered from the fragments, the fish made war upon the Athenians, as excessive eaters of fish, and at length a treaty was concluded, by which Melanthius, the tragic poet, and other voracious fish-eaters, were given up to be devoured by the fishes.
The wit of the piece appears to have consisted chiefly in playing upon words, which Archippus was noted for carrying to great excess. (Schol. in Aristoph. Vesp. 481, Bekker.)
The other plays of Archippus, mentioned by the grammarians, are *)Amfitru/wn, *(Hraklh=s gamw=n, *)/Onou skia/, *Plou=tos, and *(ri/nwn. Four of the lost plays which are assigned to Aristophanes, were by some ascribed to Archippus, namely, *Poi/hsis, *Nauago/s, *Nh=soi, *Ni/obis or *Ni/obos. (Meineke, 1.207-210.) Two Pythagorean philosophers of this name are mentioned in the list of F
（*Xariklh=s), an Athenian demagogue, son of Apollodorus, was one of the commissioners (*Zhthtai/) appointed to investigate the affair of the mutilation of the Hermae in B. C. 415, on which occasion he inflamed the passions of the with a plot for the destruction of the democracy. (Thuc. 6.27-29, 53, 60, &c.; Andoc. de Myst. p. 6.) In B. C. 413 he was sent in command of a squadron round the Peloponnesus together with Demosthenes, and succeeded with him in fortifying a small peninsula on the coast of Laconia, to serve as a position for annoying the enemy. (Thuc. 7.20, 26.) In B. C. 404 he was appointed one of the thirty tyrants; nor did he relinquish under the new government the coarse arts of the demagogue which had distinguished him under the democracy, violent and tyrannical measures. We may conelude, that he was one of the remnant of the Thirty who withdrew to Eleusis on the establishment of the council of Ten, and who, according to Xenophon, were treacherously murdered i
