AGNONIDES


AGNONIDES
AGNONIDES
Rhetor, vel potius Sycophanta Atheniensis, qui accusavit Phocionem apud Polyperchontem, quod Piraeeum Nicanori prodidisset. Damnatô et cicutâ exstinctô Phocione cum desiisset esse, quem odisset Populus, rebusque ipsis perspexisset, qualem magistrum custodemque temperantiae ac iustitiae amisisset, statuam ei aeneam posuit: hunc Agnonidem vero communi omnium suffragiô damnatum necavit. Plut. et Corn. Nepos, in Phocione.
