14. Of Byzantium, was sent as ambassador by Antiochus the Great to the two Scipios immediately after they had crossed the Hellespont, B. C. 190. He was instructed to offer, in the king's name, the cession of Lampsacus, Smyrna, and some other cities of Ionia and Aeolia, and the payment of half the expenses of the war; but these offers were sternly rejected by the Romans: and Heracleides, having in vain sought to gain over Scipio Africanus by a private negotiation, returned to Antiechus to report the failure of his mission. (Plb. 21.10-12; Liv. 37.34-36; Dioed. xxix. Exc. Leg. p. 620; Appian, App. Syr. 29.)
