[Son] of Arkhembrotos; Laconian or Milesian; elegiac poet and piper. The story is that he stirred up the Lacedaemonians with his poems when they were fighting with the Messenians and thus made them victorious. He is from a very early time, a contemporary of the so-called seven sages, or even earlier. He flourished in the 35th Olympiad.[1] He wrote a constitution for the Lacedaemonians, and didactic poems in elegiacs, and warlike songs, in 5 books.
