*)Ameini/as), a younger brother of Aeschylus, of the Attic demos of Pallene according to Herodotus (8.84, 93), or of that of Decelea according to Plutarch (Plut. Them. 4), distinguished himself at the battle of Salamis (B. C. 480) by making the first attack upon the Persian ships, and also by his pursuit of Artemisia. He and Eumenes were judged to have been the bravest on this occasion among all the Athenians. (Herod., Plut. ll. cc. ; Diod. 11.27.) Aelian mentions (V. H. 5.19), that Ameinias prevented the condemnation of his brother Aeschylus by the Areiopagus. [AESCHYLUS, p. 41a.]
