Albi'nus 4. SP. POSTUMIUS SP. F. A. N. ALBUS REGILLENSIS, apparently son of No 2, was consular tribune B. C. 432, and served as legatus in the war in the following year. (Liv. 4.25, 27.)
(*)Alkibia/dhs), the son of Cleinias, was born at Athens about B. C. 450, or a little earlier. His father fell at Coroneia B. C. 447, leaving Alcibiades and a younger son. (Plat. Protag. p. 320a.) The last campaign of the war with Potidaea was in B. C. 429. Now as Alcibiades served in this war, and the young Athenians were not sent out on foreign military service before they had attained their 20th year, he could not have been born later than B. C. 449. If he served in the first campaign (B. C. 432), he must have been at least five years old at the time of his father's death. Nepos (Alcib. 10) says he was about forty years old at the time of his death (B. C. 404), and his mistake has been copied by Mitford. Alcibiades was connected by birth with the noblest families of Athens. Through his father he traced his descent from Eurysaces, the son of Ajax (Plat. Alcib. I. p. 121), and through him from Aeacus and Zeus. His mother, Deinomache, was the daughter of Megacles, the head of the h
Alci'damas (*)Alkida/mas), a Greek rhetorician, was a native of Elaea in Aeolis, in Asia Minor. (Quint. Inst. 3.1.10, with Spalding's note) He was a pupil of Gorgias, and resided at Athens between the years B. C. 432 and 411. Here he gave instructions in eloquence, according to Eudocia (p. 100), as the successor of his master, and was the last of that sophistical school, with which the only object of eloquencc was to please the hearers by the pomp and brilliancy of words. That the works of Alcidamas bore the strongest marks of this character of his school is stated by Aristotle (Aristot. Rh. 3.3.8), who censures his pompous diction and extravagant use of poetical epithets and phrases, and by Dionysius (De Isaeo, 19), who calls his style vulgar and inflated. He is said to have been an opponent of Isocrates (Tzetz. Chil. 11.672), but whether this statement refers to real personal enmity, or whether it is merely an inference from the fact, that Alcidamas condemned the practice of writin
Aristeus (*)Aristeu/s), or ARISTEAS (*)Ariste/as, Herod.). 1. A Corinthian, son of Adeimantus, commanded the troops sent by Corinth to maintain Potidaea in its revolt, B. C. 432. With Potidaea he was connected, and of the troops the greater number were volunteers, serving chiefly from attachment to him. Appointed on his arrival commander-in-chief of the allied infantry, he encountered the Athenian Callias, butwas outmanœuvred and defeated. With his own division he was successful, and with it on returning from the pursuit he found himself cut off, but byy a bold course made his way with slight loss into the town. This was now blockaded, and Aristeus, seeing no hope, bid them leave himself with a garrison of 500, and the rest make their way to sea. This escape was effected, and he himself induced to join in it; after which he was occupied in petty warfare in Chalcidice, and negotiations for aid from Peloponnesus. Finally, not long before the surrender of Potidaea, in the second year
Callias 3. Son of Calliades, was appointed with four colleagues to the command of the second body of Athenian forces sent against Perdiccas and the revolted Chalcidians, B. C. 432, and was slain in the battle against Aristeus near Potidaea. (Thuc. 1.61-63; Diod. 12.37.) This is probably the same Callias who is mentioned as a pupil of Zeno the Eleatic, from whose instructions, purchased for 100 minae, he is said to have derived much real advantage, sofo\s kai\ e)llo/gimos ge/gonen.

Dorieus (*Dwrieu/s), the son of Diagoras [DIAGORAS], one of the noblest of the noble Heracleid family, the Eratids of Ialysus, in Rhodes. He was victor in the pancratium in three successive Olympiads, the 87th, 88th, and 89th, B. C. 432, 428 and 424, the second of which is mentioned by Thucydides (3.8); at the Nemean games he won seven, at the Isthmian eight victories. He and his kinsman, Peisidorus, were styled in the announcement as Thurians, so that, apparently, before 424 at latest, they had left their country. (Paus. 6.7.) The whole family were outlawed as heads of the aristocracy by the Athenians (Xen. Hell. 1.5.19), and took refuge in Thurii; and from Thurii, after the Athenian disaster at Syracuse had re-established there the Peloponnesian interest, Dorieus led thirty galleys to the aid of the Spartan cause in Greece. He arrived with them at Cnidus in the winter of 412. (Thuc. 8.35.) He was, no doubt, active in the revolution which, in the course of the same winter, was effec
Go'rgias a Lacedaemonian statuary, who flourished in the 87th Olympiad, B. C. 432. (Plin. Nat. 34.8. s. 19; where, for Gorgias, Lacon, we should read Gorgias Lacon ; Sillig in Böttiger's Amalthea, vol. iii. p. 285.) [P.S

Lacedaemo'nius (*Lakedaimo/nios), son of Cimon, so named by his father in honour of the Lacedaemonians, had for his mother, according to Stesimbrotus, an Arcadian; according to Diodorus Periegetes, Isodice, daughter of Euryptolemus, son of Megacles. He was joint commander of the ten ships which the Athenians, after making alliance with the Corcyreans, despatched to assist them, B. C. 432. Plutarch has what seems a foolish story, that this appointment to a quite inadequate squadron was a piece of political spite on the part of Pericles; and that the reinforcement which quickly followed was only sent in consequence of general complaints. (Plut. Cim. 16, Per. 29 ; Thuc. 1.45.) [A.H.
Leagrus (*Le/agros), son of Glaucon, in conjunction with Sophanes the athlete, of Deceleia, commanded the Athenians who fell in the first attempt to colonise Amphipolis, B. C. 465, at Drabescus or Datus (Hdt. 9.75; Paus. 1.29.4; comp. Thuc. 1.100). His son, a second Glaucon, commanded, with the orator Andocides, the reinforcements sent to the aid of the Corcyraeans, B. C. 432; and his grandson, another Leagrus, is ridiculed in a passage of the comic poet Plato (apud Athen. ii. p. 68c.), as a highborn fool. ou)x o(ra=s o(/ti o( me\n *Le/agros *Glau/kwnos mega/lou ge/nous ko/kkuc h)li/qios perie/rxetai.
