Agasicles, Agesicles

or HEGESICLES (Ἀγασικλῆς, Ἀγησικλῆς, Ἡγησικλῆς), a king of Sparta, the thirteenth of the line of Procles. He was contemporary with the Agid Leon, and succeeded his father Archidamus I., probably about B. C. 590 or 600. During his reign the Lacedaemonians carried on an unsuccessful war against Tegea, but prospered in their other wars. (Hdt. 1.65; Paus. 3.7.6, 3. §. 5.)
