Aeschines of Neapolis

Aeschines of Neapolis (Gr. Αἰσχίνης ὁ Νεαπολίτης; of modern Naples) was an Academic philosopher who shared the leadership of the Academy at Athens together with Charmadas and Clitomachus about 110 BC, when Clitomachus was an old man.[1][2] Diogenes Laërtius says that he was a pupil and favourite (paidika) of Melanthius of Rhodes.[3]
