*Xari/sios), a Greek orator and a contemporary of Demosthenes, wrote orations for others, in which he imitated the style of Lysias. He was in his turn imitated by Hegesias. (Cic. Brut. 83.) His orations, which were extant in the time of Quintilian and Rutilius Lupus, must have been of considerable merit, as we learn from the former writer (x. 1.70), that they were ascribed by some to Menander. Rutilius Lupus (1.10, 2.6) has given two extracts from them. (Comp. Ruhnken, ad Rutil. Lup. 1.10; Westermann, Gesch. der Griech. Beredtsamkeit. § 54, n. 34.)
