Menede'mus

*Mene/dhmos), historical.

1. A citizen of high rank at Crotona, who was appointed one of the generals to carry on the war against the exiles that had been driven from the city on occasion of the war with Syracuse in B. C. 317. Together with Paron, his colleague in the command, he totally defeated the exiles and their auxiliaries, and put them all to the sword. (Diod. 19.10.) It appears that he subsequently raised himself to the supreme power in his native city; and in that position entered into friendly relations with Agathocles; notwithstanding which the latter took an opportunity to make himself master of Crotona, by a sudden and treacherous attack. (Id. xxi. Exc. Hoesch. p. 490.) This must have been about 295 B. C.
