Ἀντικλείδης), of Athens (Athen. 10.446c.), lived after the time of Alexander the Great (Plut. Alex. 46), and is frequently referred to by later writers.


Anticleides wrote,

1. Περὶ Νόστων

Containing an account of the return of the Greeks from their ancient expeditions. (Athen. 4.157f., ix. p. 384d., xi. p. 466c.) Anticleides' statement about the Pelasgians, which Strabo (v. p.221) quotes, is probably taken from the work on the Νόστοι.

2. Δηλιακὰ

An account of Delos. (Schol. ad Apoll. Rhod. 1.1207, 1289.)

3. Ἐξηγητικὸς

Appears to have been a sort of Dictionary, in which perhaps an explanation of those words and phrases was given which occurred in the ancient stories. (Athen. 11.473b. c.) 4. Περὶ Ἀλεξάνδρου, of which the second book is quoted by Diogenes Laertius. (8.11; comp. Plut. Alex. l.c.

All written by the same Anticleides?

Whether these works were all written by Anticleides of Athens, cannot be decided with certainty.
