*Eu)anori/das) an Elean, was one of the prisoners taken by Lycus of Pharae, the lieutenant-general of the Achaeans, in B. C. 217, when he defeated EURIPIDES the Aetolian, who had been sent, at the request of the Eleans, to supersede the former commander Pyrrhias. (Plb. 5.94.) Pausanias (6.8) mentions Evanoridas as having won the boys' prize for wrestling at the Olympic and Nemean games, and as having drawn up a list of the Olympic victors, when he afterwards held the office of Ἑλλανοδίκης. (See Dict. of Ant. pp. 663, 664.)
