Μηνοχάρης), an officer of Demetrius Soter, king of Syria. In B. C. 161, when Demetrius had escaped from Rome and established himself on the Syrian throne, he sent Menochares to plead his cause with Tiberius Gracchus [No. 6.] and his fellow-commissioners, then in Cappadocia. In the following year, Menochares was sent by Demetrius to Rome, to conciliate the senate by the present of a golden crown and the surrender of Leptines, the assassin of Cn. Octavius, the Roman envoy. (Plb. 31.4,6; Diod. xxxi. Exc. Leg. xxv. p. 626.) [LEPTINES, No. 6.]
