Ἀντισθένης), a SPARTAN admiral in the Peloponnesian war, was sent out in B. C. 412, in command of a squadron, to the coast of Asia Minor, and was to have succeeded Astyochus, in case the Spartan commissioners thought it necessary to deprive that officer of his command. (Thuc. 8.39.) We hear of him again in B. C. 399, when, with two other commissioners, he was sent out to inspect the state of affairs in Asia, and announce to Dercvllidas that his command was to be prolonged for another year. (Xen. Hell. 3.2.6.) There was also an Athenian general of this name. (Mem. 3.4.1.)
