[German version] (Πελοπίδας; Pelopídas). Distinguished Theban, son of Hippocles, after to Epaminondas the outstanding commander and politician of the Boeotian League during the Theban hegemony (Boeotia, Boeotians with map). In 382 BC, P. was a young man: his year of birth was therefore probably around 410. As a supporter of the democratic faction of Ismenias [1], he fled to Athens after the Spartan occupation of the Kadmeia (Thebes), from where he apparently organized the resistance to the regime of Leontiades [2] (Plut.

Author(s): Beck, Hans (Cologne)
[German version] (Ἱπποκλείδης; Hippokleídēs). Son of Teisander, Athenian from the family of the Philaids ( Philaidai). Around 575 BC, he sought the hand in marriage of  Agariste [1], daughter of the tyrant  Cleisthenes of Sicyon, but was unsuccessful despite good prospects, losing out to the Alcmaeonid ( Alcmaeonidae)  Megacles due to a social affront (Hdt. 6,126-130; Ath. 14,628d) [1].

Lysagoras

(74 words)

Author(s): Beck, Hans (Cologne)
[German version] (Λυσαγόρας; Lysagóras) from Paros, son of Teisias.

A source hostile to Militiades is presumably the basis for the report [1]. Beck, Hans (Cologne) Bibliography 1 K. H.

Lysagoras

(66 words)

Author(s): Beck, Hans (Köln)
[English version] (Λυσαγόρας) aus Paros, Sohn des Teisias. Nach Herodot (6,133,1) soll das urspr. Motiv der Paros-Expedition des Miltiades im J. 489 v.Chr. persönlicher Groll gegen L. gewesen sein, der Miltiades zuvor angeblich beim persischen Feldherrn Hydarnes [2] verleumdet habe. Dem Bericht liegt vermutlich eine Miltiades-feindliche Quelle zu Grunde [1]. Beck, Hans (Köln) Bibliography 1 K.H.
