C5/4 BCE. Compare the very similar entry for his fellow-Theban Simmias (sigma 432) -- both feature prominently in the Phaedo of Plato; and see generally OCD(4) s.v. Cebes.
[1] For Socrates see generally sigma 829, sigma 830.
[2] For these three cf. Diogenes Laertius 2.125, though the gloss on the last does not appear there.
[3] Ms T reads e)/sti de\ kai\ "there is also an account ..."; Tiberius Hemsterhuys (1685-1766) favored this reading.
