2. A Chalcidian, who, after the expulsion of Euthymidas, assumed the direction of affairs, in conjunction with Mictio. When Chalcis was threatened by Antiochus and the Aetolians, Xenocleides and Mictio procured help from Eretria and Carystus. When the Achaeans had resolved to send aid to the Chalcidians, Xenocleides succeeded in conducting the troops into the town before they were intercepted by Antiochus. However, when Antiochus arrived at Aulis, notwithstanding the remonstrances of Mictio and Xenocleides, who were devoted to the Roman interest, the Chalcidians opened their gates to him. On the approach of Antiochus the partizans of the Romans retired from the city. (Liv. 35.38, 50, 51.)
