Χαιρεκράτης), a disciple of Socrates, is honourably recorded (Xen. Mem. 1.2.48) as one of those who attended his instructions with the sincere desire of deriving moral advantage from them, and who did not disgrace by their practice the lessons they had received. An inveterate quarrel between himself and his elder brother Chaerephon serves in Xenophon as the occasion of a good lecture on the subject of brotherly love from Socrates, who appears to have succeeded in reconciling them. (Xen. Mem. 2.3.)
