Alcman's father was brought from Sardis to Sparta as a slave, and that Alcman himself was born at Messoa. It is not known to what extent he obtained the rights of citizenship. The time at which Alcman lived is rendered somewhat doubtful by the different statements of the Greek and Armenian copies of Eusebius, and of the chronographers who followed him. On the whole, however, the Greek copy of Eusebius appears to be right in placing him at the second year of the twenty-seventh Olympiad. (B. C. 671.) He was contemporary with Ardys, king of Lydia, who reigned from 678 to 629, B. C., with Lesches, the author of the "Little Hiad," and with Terpander, during the later years of these two poets ; he was older than Stesichorus, and he is said to have been the teacher of Arion. From these circumstances, and from the fact which we learn from himself (Fr. 29), that he lived to a great age, we may conclude, with Clinton, that he flourished from about 671 to about (631 B. C. ((Clinton, Fast. i.
Psammi'tichus or PSAMMETICHUS *Yammi/tixos or *Yammh/tixos), the Greek form of the Egyptian PSAMETIK. 1. A king of Egypt and founder of the Saitic dynasty, reigned 54 years, according to Herodotus, that is, from B. C. 671 to 617. * Böckh places his accession in B. C. 654. (Manetho und die Hundstern-Periode, p. 342, &c.) (Hdt. 2.157.) The reign of this monarch forms an important epoch in Egyptian history. It was during his time that the Greeks were first introduced into Egypt; and accordingly the Greek writers were no longer exclusively dependent on the accounts of the Egyptian priests for the history of the country. Psammitiehus was the son of Necho, and after his father had been put to death by Sabacon, the Aethiopian usurper of the Egyptian throne, he fled to Syria, and was restored to Egypt by the inhabitants of the Saitic district, of which he was a native, when Sabacon abandoned Egypt in consequence of a dream. (Hdt. 2.152.) The manner in which Psammitichus obtained possession
uld follow from this account that the invasion of the Ethiopians took place about B. C. 1150. But this high date is not only in opposition to the statements of all other writers, but is at variance with the narrative of Herodotus himself, who says that Psammitichus fled into Syria when his father Necho was put to death by Sabacon (2.152), and who represents Sabacon as followed in close succession by Sethon, Sethon by the Dodecarchia and Psammitichus, the latter of whom began to reign about B. C. 671. There is, therefore, probably some corruption in the numbers in the passage of Herodotus. There can be little doubt that the Ethiopian dynasty reigned over Egypt in the latter half of the eighth century before the Christian era. They Are mentioned in the Jewish records. The So, king of Egypt, with whom Hosea, king of Israel, made an alliance about B. C. 722 (2 Kings, 17.4), was in all probability the same as the second king of the dynasty, Sebichus; * So is in Hebrew which may have been
