    Agyrrhius in Wikipedia Agyrrhius (Gr. Ἀγύῤῥιος) was a native of Collytus in Attica,[1] whom Andocides ironically calls "the noble and the good" (τὸν καλὸν κἀγαθὸν) after being in prison many years for embezzlement of public money.[2] He obtained around 395 BC the restoration of the Theorica, and also tripled the pay for attending the assembly, though he reduced the allowance previously given to the comic writers.[3][4][5][6] By this expenditure of the public revenue Agyrrhius became so popular that he was appointed general (strategos) in 389 BC.[7][8][9][10]
