1. The younger of the two legitimate sons of Pericles. He and his brother were educated by their fattier with the greatest care, but they both appear to have been of inferior capacity, which was anything but copensated by worth of character, though Paralus seems to have been a somewhat more hopeful youth than his brother. Both of them got the nickname of Βλιττομάμμας. Both Xanthippus and Paralus fell victims to the plague B. C. 429. (Plnt. Pericl. 24, 36, de Consolat. p. 118e.; Plat. Aleib. i. p. 118e., with the scholiast on the passage, Protag. p. 319e.; Athen. 11.505, 506.)
