Telemnastus

*Thle/mnastos), a Cretan, whom Perseus sent to Antiochus Epiphanes, in B. C. 168, to urge him by every motive of self-interest to side with him against Rome. (Plb. 29.3.) We may perhaps identify this person with the Telemnastus, a Gortynian, who with 500 men effectually aided the Achaeans in their war with Nabis. (Plb. 33.15.)
