Headword: *lakrati/dhs
Adler number: lambda,70
Translated headword: Lakratides, Lacratides; Lakrateides
Vetting Status: high
This man [was] an archon in Athens long ago. He held office in the era of Dareios,[1] at a time when there was a heavy fall of snow and everything froze up, preventing anyone from travelling. Hence they used to call all cold things "Lakratideses". Aristophanes [writes]: "for an ancient Lakratides the leg[s] are heavy".[2] That is, because of old age I cannot walk fast.

The principal source of this material is a fragment of Philochorus (FGrH 328 F202) preserved in the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 220. Develin (below) 48 dates Lakrateides -- the most authentic version of his name -- to the period 521/20-512/11.
Broadly similar material, more briefly, in Hesychius lambda217 and Photius lambda55 (where the editors prints the name as Lakratidas).
[1] King Dareios (Darius) I of Persia, reigned 522-486.
[2] Aristophanes, Acharnians 220.
