This man, incurring a charge of treason at Nymphaion, the place in the Black Sea, fled; he went to Scythia and married. But having two daughters, he sent them home, where Philochares married one of them and Kleoboulos the other.

Presumably prompted by Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., though there the gloss reads simply 'a proper name.'
Gylon, an Athenian of the deme Kerameis, was the maternal grandfather of the orator Demosthenes (delta 454), and the Suda's material here stems from anti-Demosthenes material in Aeschines 3.171-2 (web address 1). 'Kleoboulos' here should be Kleoboule, Demosthenes's mother. Beyond that, for an attempt to separate fact from fiction, see J.K. Davies, Athenian Propertied Families 600-300 BC (Oxford 1971) 121-2.
