If this individual is correctly named, he is otherwise unknown, and undatable. But perhaps [DW] he is Plato's friend and contemporary Helikon of Kyzikos, mentioned in Plutarch, Dion 19, as the recipient of a talent of silver from Dionysius II of Syracuse (delta 1179) for having correctly predicted a solar eclipse (in 360). The thirteenth Letter attributed to Plato calls him (360C) a pupil of Eudoxus (epsilon 3429).
