Pasi'ppidas

*Pasippi/das), a Lacedaeinonian, was employed, iin a. 100.410, after the battle of Cyzicus, in collecting ships from the allies and appears to have been at thasos when that island revolted from Sparta inl the same year, for he was banished on an accusation of having joined with Tissaphernes in ef(ectinig the revolution. He did not, however, remain long in exile, since he is mentioned as the head of soie ;ubassadors sent from Sparta, ts thie Persiani court, in B. C. 408, to counteract ia rival embassy from Athens, which was also proceeding thither. The envoys, however, didi not advance further than (Girdiumtt in Phrygia; for early in the next spring, B. C. 407, as they wet ret resuniii their journey, they miet another L:acedaemioniahtn embassy returning from the king, whith the intelligence that they had already obtained fromt hims all they wanted. (Xen. Hell. 1.1.12, 3.13, 4.1.)
