4. A descendant of Demaratus, king of Sparta, from whom, together with Eurysthenes, who was apparently his brother, he inherited the dominion of Eliserne and Teuthrania, in Asia Minor. He was among the Greeks who accompanied the younger Cyrus in his expedition against his brother, and is mentioned more than once by Xenophon (Xen. Anab. 2.1.3, 2.1, 7, 8, 10.). He returned safe home; for at the time of the expedition of Thimbron into Asia Minor (B. C. 399) he and Eurysthenes were still governing their little principality, and readily attached themselves to the Lacedaemonian commander. (Xen. Hell. 3.1.6.)
