2. Son of Timocrates, was one of the commanders of the Corinthian force sent to Acarnania in B. C. 431. (Thuc. 2.33.)

3 . The Achaean, was general of the Achaean League in B. C. 223, in which year he obtained possession of Argos, and successfully resisted the efforts of Cleomenes to recover; it. In B. C. 221 he was again general of the League; but in consequence of the want of discipline and practice among the Achaean troops, he was unwilling to undertake the command of the war against the Aetolians ; and accordingly a few days before the expiration of the office, he resigned it to Aratus who was already general elect. He was a candidate for the office again in B. C. 218, and was supported by Aratus, but he was not elected in consequence of the influence of Apelles, the minister of Philip V., who wished to mortify Aratus. He was however general again in B. C. 216, after the termination of the Social War. (Plb. 2.53, 4.6, 7. 82, 5.106 ; Plut. Cleom. 20, Arat. 38, 47.
