Παντακλῆς), an Athenian, immortalized by Aristophanes as a pre-eminently stupid man, who, preparing to conduct a procession, put on his helmet before he fixed the crest to it. He was ridiculed also for his stupidity by Eupolis in the χρυσοῦν γένος. (Arist. Ran. 1034; Schol. ad loe.; comp. Meineke, Fragm. Com. Graec. vol. i. p. 145, ii. p. 544.)
