Adeimantus

*)Adei/mantos).

1. The son of Ocytus, the Corinthian commander in the invasion of Greece by Xerxes. Before the battle of Artemisium he threatened to sail away, but was bribed by Themistocles to remain. He opposed Themistocles with great insolence in the council which the commanders held before the battle of Salamis. According to the Athenians he took to flight at the very commencement of the battle, but this was denied by the Corinthians and the other Greeks. (Hdt. 8.5, 56, 61, 94; Plut. Them. 11.)
