Evander

*Eu)/andros), a Phocian, was the pupil and successor of Lacydes as the head of the Academic School at Athens, about B. C. 215. Evander himself was succeeded by his pupil Hegesinus. Concerning the opinions and writings of this philosopher nothing is known. (D. L. 4.60; Cic. Ac. 2.6.) Several Pythagoreans of the name of Evander, who were natives of Croton, Metapontum, and Leontini, are mentioned by Iamblichus (Vit. Pyth. 36), and a Cretan Evander occurs in Plutarch. (Lysand. 23.)
