He was attacked, in an expedition up the plain of the Maeander, by some Carians and Samians of Anaea, and fell with many of his men. (Thuc. 3.19.) Possibly this Lysicles is the same with Lysicles " the sheep dealer," whom Aristophanes appears to allude to (Eq. 131) as Cleon's immediate predecessor on the demagogic throne, and in a subsequent passage (ib. 765.) names in bad company, and who,. it appears, after the death of Pericles married As pasia. By her he had a son, Poristes, and through her instructions, says Aeschines the disciple of Socrates, he attained the highest importance. (Ap. Plut. Per. 100.24; Schol. ad Plat. Menex. p. 235; compare Harpocr. and Hesych. s. v. προβατῶλης; Schol. ad Aristoph. Eq. l.c.)
