Γλαυκίδης), one of the chief men of Abydus when it was besieged by Philip V. of Macedon, in B. C. 200, and apparently one of the fifty elders whom the people had bound by an oath to slay the women and children and to burn the treasures of the city, as soon as the enemy should have got possession of the inner wall. Glaucides, however, with some others, shrunk from what they had undertaken, and sent the priests with suppliant wreaths to make a surrender of the town to Philip. (Plb. 16.29-34; Liv. 31.17.)
