Ἀντισθένης), of RHODES, a Greek historian who lived about the year B. C. 200. He took an active part in the political affairs of his country, and wrote a history of his own time, which, notwithstanding its partiality towards his native island, is spoken of in terms of high praise by Polybius. (16.14, &c.; comp. D. L. 6.19.) Plutarch (de Fluv. 22) mentions an Antisthenes who wrote a work called Meleagris, of which the third book is quoted; and Pliny (Plin. Nat. 36.12) speaks of a person of the same name, who wrote on the pyramids; but whether they are the same person as the Rhodian, or two distinct writers, or the Ephesian Antisthenes mentioned by Diogenes Laertius (6.19), cannot be decided.
