), commander of the Pitanata lochus in the Spartan army, who refused to march previously to the battle of Plataea (B. C. 479) to a part of the plain near the city, as Pausanias ordered, because he thought that such a movement was equivalent to a flight.
He at length changed his mind when he had been left by the other part of the army, and set out to join Pausanias.
He fell in the battle which followed, after distinguishing himself by his bravery, and was buried among the Irenes.
