    Cleombrotus of Ambracia: Interpretations of a Suicide From Callimachus to Agathias.G. D. Williams - 1995 - Classical Quarterly 45 (01):154-.
    At Phaedo 59b Echecrates asks Phaedo who was present on the day when Socrates drank the hemlock in prison. Various Athenians are named , then various foreigners , but when Echecrates subsequently asks if two other foreigners, Aristippus and Cleombrotus, were present, Phaedo replies that they were said to be in Aegina .
