*)Amelhsago/ras) or MELESA'GORAS (Μελησαλόρας), as he is called by others, of Chalcedon, one of the early Greek historians, from whom Gorgias and Eudemus of Naxos borrowed. (Clem. Alex. Strom. vi. p. 629a; Schol. ad Eurip. Alcest. 2; Apollod. 3.10.3, where Heyne has substituted Μελησαγόρας for Μνησαγόρας.) Maximus Tyrius (Serm. 38.3) speaks of a Melesagoras, a native of Eleusis, and Antigonus of Carystus (Hist. Mirab. 100.12) of an Amelesagoras of Athens, the latter of whom wrote an account of Attica; these persons are probably the same, and perhaps also the same as Amelesagoras of Chalcedon. (Vossius, de Hist. Graec. p. 22, ed. Westermann.)
