5. An Acarnanian, was sent by his countrymen as ambassador to the Lacedaiemonians, B. C. 211 to urge them to ally themselves with Philip V. of Macedon,--at any rate not to join the Roman and Aetolian league. He defended the kings of Macedonia from the attack of CHLAENEAS, and dwelt on the danger of allowing the Romans to gain a footing in Greece and on the indignity of the descendants of those who had repulsed Xerxes and his barbarians becoming now the confederates of other barbarians against Greeks. (Pol. 9.32-39.)
