1. An Athenian, the son of Pythocles, of the deme Myrrhinus (Plat. Phaedr.
He was a friend of Plato (D. L. 3.29
), by whom he is introduced in the Phaedrus
and the Convivium.
It appears from these that he was a great admirer of Lysias and the other rhetoricians of his age. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec.
vol. ii. p. 717.)
