4. The archon eponymus for the year B. C. 403. His archonship is memorable for the restoration, with some modifications, of the old laws of Solon and Draco. These were inscribed on the stoa poecile in the so-called Ionian alphabet, which was then first brought into use at Athens for public documents. (Andoc. de Myst. p. 11; Plut. Arist. 1.) Athenaeus (i. p. 3a.) mentions an Athenian of this name who was famous as a collector of books. Whether he was the same person as the archon, or not, does not appear.
