Charĭcles

Χαρικλῆς).


1.

One of the Thirty Tyrants set over Athens by the Lacedaemonians, and possessing great influence among his colleagues (Xen. Mem. i. 2.31).


2.

A celebrated physician in the train of Tiberius. Towards the end of that emperor's life, Charicles, on taking leave of him, as if about to journey abroad, managed, in grasping the hand of Tiberius, to feel his pulse, and became instantly convinced that the latter had not more than two days to live, a secret which he divulged to Macro (Tac. Ann. vi. 50).
