*Lakedaimo/nios), son of Cimon, so named by his father in honour of the Lacedaemonians, had for his mother, according to Stesimbrotus, an Arcadian; according to Diodorus Periegetes, Isodice, daughter of Euryptolemus, son of Megacles. He was joint commander of the ten ships which the Athenians, after making alliance with the Corcyreans, despatched to assist them, B. C. 432. Plutarch has what seems a foolish story, that this appointment to a quite inadequate squadron was a piece of political spite on the part of Pericles; and that the reinforcement which quickly followed was only sent in consequence of general complaints. (Plut. Cim. 16, Per. 29 ; Thuc. 1.45.)
