Stra'tolas

*Strato/las), a citizen of Elis, and one of the leaders of the oligarchical party there. In B. C. 364 we find him in command of what Xenophon calls the Three Hundred, -- perhaps a body organized by the oligarchs out of their own class, in imitation of the Sacred Band of Thebes (see Thirlwall's Greece, vol. v. p. 136). Acting in this capacity, he fell in battle at Olympia against the Arcadians, who had invaded Elis, and were attempting to celebrate the Olympic games under the presidency of Pisa. (Xen. Hell. 7.4. §§ 15,31; comp. Diod.15.77,82.)
