Agla'us

Ἀγλαός), a poor citizen of Psophis in Arcadia, whom the Delphic oracle pronounced to be happier than Gyges, king of Lydia, on account of his contentedness, when the king asked the oracle, if any man was happier than he. (V. Max. 7.1.2; Plin. Nat. 7.47.) Pausanias (8.24.7) places Aglaus in the time of Croesus.
