Echecra'tides

Ἐχεκρατίδης), a Peripatetic philosopher, who is mentioned among the disciples of Aristotle. He is spoken of only by Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v. Μήθυμνα), from whom we learn that he was a native of Methymna in Lesbos.

Several other persons of this name, concerning whom nothing is known beyond what is cont ined in the passages where they occur, are mentioned by Thucdides (1.111), Pausanias (10.16(. § 4), Aelian (Ael. VH 1.25), Lucian (Timon, 7), and by Anyte in the Greek Anthology. (6.123.)
