*Lu/kinos), an Italian Greek, an exile from his native city, who entered the service of Antigonus Gonatas, and was appointed by him to command the garrison, which he left in possession of Athens, after the termination of the Chremonidean war, B. C. 263. (Teles, ap. Stobaeum, Floril. ii. p. 82, ed. Gaisf.; Droysen, Hellenism. vol. ii. pp. 206, 222.) Niebuhr conjectures, plausibly enough, that Lycinus was a native of Tarentum, and had been compelled to fly from that city on its conquest by the Romans. (Niebuhr, Kleine Schrift p. 461.)
