*Praci/tas), a Lacedaemonian, who, in B. C. 393, was stationed as polemarch, with his mora, at Sicyon. The Corinthians, Pasimelus and Alcimanes, being desirous of restoring Corinth to her connection with Lacedaemon, of-fered to admit Praxitas by night within the long walls that joined Corinth with Lechaeum. In this they succeeded, and in the engagement which took place next day with the Argive forces, the Lacedæmonians slaughtered great numbers of the latter. After this victory, Praxitas, having been joined by his allies, demolished the long walls, and then crossing the isthmus, took and garrisoned Sidus and Crommyon. (Xen. Helen. 4.4.7-13.)
