Lesbōnax in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities

1. A Greek rhetorician who lived early in the first century of our era. He composed political declamations on imaginary topics. Two of these have come down to us, exhorting the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War to be bold in battle against the Thebans and the Spartans. They have been separately edited by Orelli (Leipzig, 1820). 2. A Greek grammarian of uncertain date, though later than the preceding. There exists a work of his on figures of grammar (Περὶ Σχημάτων). See R. Müller, De Lesbonacte Grammatico (1890).
