Καλλικρατίδας). A Spartan, who succeeded Lysander in the command of the fleet. He took Methymna, and routed the Athenian fleet under Conon. He was defeated and killed near the Arginusae, in a naval battle, B.C. 406. He was one of the last who preserved the true Spartan character, which had become greatly altered for the worse, during the Peloponnesian War, by the habit which the Lacedaemonians had contracted of fighting beyond the limits of their country.
