The Lykeion [is] one of the gymnasia in Athens. Theopompus says that Peisistratos created it, but Philochorus [says] that it came into existence under the chairmanship of Pericles.[1]
Greek Original:
Λύκειον: ἓν τῶν παρ' Ἀθηναίοις γυμνασίων τὸ Λύκειον. ὃ Θεόπομπος μὲν Πεισίστρατον ποιῆσαί φησι, Φιλόχορος δὲ ἐπιστατοῦντος Περικλέους γενέσθαι.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on Demosthenes 24.114. See also lambda 801.
The name of the Lykeion is best known for a fact not mentioned here: being the chosen location for the philosophical school founded by Aristotle in the C4 BCE. See generally OCD(4) pp.160 (under 'Aristotle') and 1108 (under 'Peripatetic school').
[1] Theopompus FGrH 115 F136; Philochorus FGrH 328 F37. For Peisistratos see generally pi 1474; for Pericles, pi 1179, pi 1180, pi 1181.
