Γλαύκων), relatives of Plato.

1. The son of Critias, son of Dropides, was also the brother of Callaeschrus, and the father of Charmides and of Plato's mother, Perictione; he was, consequently, uncle to Critias (the tyrant) on the father's side, and to Plato on the mother's side. (Plat. passim; Xen. Mem. 3.7.1; Heindorf, ad Plat. Charm. p. 154.)
