The son of Kleainetos. He was sent off to Pylos and Sphakteria,[1] as the siege [there] was dragging on, a crazy man, son of a tanner; [the man] who was the political opponent of Nikias the son of Nikeratos.[2] Having accomplished many things, he was later sent off into Thrace, as general, and won over many cities. After arriving at Amphipolis he fought a war against Spartans, with Brasidas[3] serving as their general; and he died there, after being struck by a Myrkinian peltast.
