Ἀμεινοκλῆς), a Corinthian shipbuilder, who visited Samos about B. C. 704, and built four ships for the Samians. (Thuc. 1.13.) Pliny (Plin. Nat. 7.56) says, that Thucydides mentioned Ameinocles as the inventor of the trireme ; but this is a mistake, for Thucydides merely states that triremes were first built at Corinth in Greece, without ascribing their invention to Ameinocles. According to Syncellus (p. 212c), triremes were first built at Athens by Ameinocles.
