Le'ptines

4. A Syracusan, whose daughter was married to Hieron, afterwards king of Syracuse. Leptines was at that time, we are told, unquestionably the man of the highest consideration among his fellowcitizens, which induced Hieron, who had just been appointed general of the republic, but was already aiming at higher objects, to court his alliance. (Plb. 1.9.)
