). 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.
