2. The father of Aristotle, who belonged to the family of the Asclepiadae, and was descended from Nicomachus, the son of Machaon. He had another son named Arimnestus, and a daughter named Arimneste, by his wife Phaestis, or Phaestias, who was also descended from Aesculapius. He was a native of Stageira, and the friend and physician of Amyntas II., king of Macedonia, B. C. 393-369. He was perhaps the author of the works attributed (apparently) by Suidas to his ancestor, the son of Machaon. (Suid. s. v. Ἀριστοτέλης, Νικόμαχος; Ammon. in vita Aristot.; D. L. 5.1.1.; Dionys. De Demosth. et Aristot. § 5; Joann. Tzetz. Chil. 10.727).
