FOKIS (Ancient area) GREECE

Evander

Evander, (Euandros), a Phocian, was the pupil and successor of Lacydes as the head of the Academic School at Athens, about B. C. 215. Evander himself was succeeded by his pupil Hegesinus. Concerning the opinions and writings of this philosopher nothing is known. (Diog. Laert. iv. 60; Cic. Acad. ii. 6.)


Poets

AMFISSA (Ancient city) PARNASSOS

Archytas

Archytas (Archutas), of Amphissa, a Greek poet, who was probably a contemporary of Euphorion, about B. C. 300, since it was a matter of doubt with the ancients themselves whether the epic poem Geranos was the work of Archytas or Euphorion (Athen. iii.). Plutarch (Quaest. Gr. 15) quotes from him an hexameter verse concerning the country of the Ozolian Locrians. Two other lines, which he is said to have inserted in the Hermes of Eratosthenes, are preserved in Stobaeus (Serrn. lviii. 10). He seems to have been the same person whom Laertius (viii. 82) calls an epigrammatist, and upon whom Bion wrote an epigram which he quotes. (iv. 52)

Chrysus

Chrysus (Chrusos), the fourteenth (or thirteenth) of the family of the Asclepiadae, was the youngest son of Nebrus, the brother of Gnosidicus, and the father of Elaphus; and lived in the sixth century B. C. in the island of Cos. During the Crissaean war, while the Amphyctions were besieging the town of Crissa in Phocis, the plague broke out among their army. Having consulted the oracle of Delphi in consequence, they were directed to fetch from Cos "the young of a stag, together with gold", which was interpreted to mean Nebrus and Chrysus. They accordingly persuaded them both to join the camp, where Chrysus was the first person to mount the wall at the time of the general assault, but was at the same time mortally wounded, B. C. 591. He was buried in the hippodrome at Delphi, and worshipped by the inhabitants as a hero (enagixo). (Thessali Oratio, in Hippocr. Opera)
