Ly'cidas

Λυκίδης), a member of the senate of Five Hundred at Athens, who was stoned to death by his fellow-citizens, because he advised them to listen to the proposals of peace offered by Mardonius in B. C. 479: his wife and children suffered the same fate at the hands of the Athenian women. (Hdt. 9.5.) The same story is related of Cyrsilus at the invasion of Xerxes eleven years before [CYRSILUS]; and both tales probably refer to only one event.
