Onomacles

Ὀνομακλῆς), an Athentian, was joined with Phrynichus and Scironides, B. C. 412, in the conmmanad of an Atlenian and Argive force, which, after a battle with the Milesians, who were supported by Chalcideus and Tissaphernes, prepared to besiege Miletus, but on the arrival of a Pelopollnnesianl and Sicilian fleet, sailed awav to Samos, Ibv the advice of lPhrynichtls. Shlortlv after, in the same year, whesi the Athenians at Samlos had been reinforced, Ononacles was sent with part of the armament, and with Stromibichides and Esictnimon for his colleagues, to act against Chios (Timc. 8.25-27, 30, 33, 34, 38l, 40, 55, 61). It was probably the same Onoimacles who was afterwards one of the thirty tyratnts, ill B. C. 404 (Xen. Hell. 2.3.2). We find mention made also of another Onoimacles, who, together with Archeptolemus, was involved ini the condemnation of ANTIPHON ( Anon. Vit. Thitc.). A Spartan of the same name is recorded by Xenophon (Xenoph. Hell. 2.3.10) as ephor ἐπώνυμος, in the eighth year of the Peloponnesian war.
