*Lusanori/das), one of the three Spartan harmosts who surrendered the Cadmeia to the Theban exiles in B. C. 379. His two colleagues Herippidas or Hermippidas and Arcesus were executed by the Spartan government; but as Lysanoridas was absent on the night of the insurrection, he met with a less severe punishment, and was sentenced to pay a large sum of money. Being unable, however, to do this, he went into voluntary exile. (Plut. Pel. 13, De Gen. Socrat. 5, 17, 34; Diod. 15.27.) It was related by Theopompus (ap. Athen. 13.609b.) that Lysandridas, by whom he probably means Lysanoridas, was expelled from Sparta by the intrigues of his enemy Agesilaus, and that his mother Xenopeitheia, the most beautiful woman in the Peloponnesus, and his sister Chryse, were put to death by the Lacedaemonians.
