2. A Pharsalian, was a proxenus of the Athenians and happened to be at Athens in B. C. 411, during the usurpation of the Four Hundred. When the tumult against the government broke out in the Peiraeeus, and Theramenes had gone thither with promise of quelling it, Thucydides with some difficulty restrained the adherents of the oligarchs in the city from marching down to attack the rioters, representing the mischief attendant on civil discord while the Lacedaemonians were so close at hand. (Thuc. 8.92.)
