1 Phrynichus, commander of the Athenian fleet at Samos, took part in the Revolution of the Four Hundred in 411 B.C. According to Thucydides （viii. 92） he was murdered in the market place in broad daylight （ἐν τῇ ἀγόρᾳ πληθούσῃ） by an unknown hand, after returning from a mission to Sparta which had failed. But the account of Lysias （Lys. 13.71） agrees in the main with that of Lycurgus. The spring was probably in the market place. Critias was later chief of the Thirty.
