Headword: Λεωτυχίδης
Adler number: lambda,279
Translated headword: Leotychides, Leotychidas
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] son of Leotychos.
Greek Original:
Λεωτυχίδης: ὁ τοῦ Λεωτύχου.
A reasonable definition of this name if construed as a patronymic. But in fact the name which occurs in the historical record is Leotychides itself, notably as the name of that of two Eurypontid kings of Sparta. For Leotychidas (sic: Doric dialect) II, who reigned c.491-469, see OCD(4) s.v. The man who would have become Leotychidas III at the end of the fifth century was rejected on suspicion of being an illegitimate son of the renegade Athenian Alkibiades (alpha 1280) rather than his notional father Agis II; this brought about the unexpected succession of Agesilaos (alpha 229).
