1. An Achaean of Tritaea, was one of the deputies who met to deliberate concerning the course to be pursued at the breaking out of the war between Perseus and the Romans (B. C. 169). Though his sentiments were hostile to Rome, he dissuaded his countrymen from taking any active part against the republic (Plb. 28.6). He was one of the Achaeans afterwards carried to Rome in B. C. 167, to await the judgment of the senate, and an embassy sent thither by his countrymen in B. C. 160, had for its chief object to obtain the liberation of him and Polybius (Id. 32.7). He was not, however, set free till long after, when he returned to his native country, where we find him thenceforth taking a strong part in support of the Roman influence, and opposing the destructive counsels of Critolaus and Diaeus. (Id. 38.5, 40.4.)
