Eucles

Εὐκλῆς).

1. Of Rhodes, a son of Callianax and Callipateira, the daughter of Diagoras, belonged to the family of the Eratidae or Diagoridae. He gained a victory in boxing at Olympia, though it is uncertain in what year; and there was a statue of him at Olympia, the work of Naucydes. (Paus. 6.6.1, 7.1.) The Scholiast on Pindar (Pind. O. 7.16) calls him Euclon, and describes him as a nephew of Callipateira. (Böckh, Eaplicat. ad Pind. Ol. vii. p. 166, &c.; DIAGORAS, ERATIDAE.)
