Alexicrates (Ancient Greek: Ἀλεξικράτης) was a Pythagorean philosopher who lived at the time of Plutarch (that is, around the turn of the 1st century),[1] and whose disciples continued to observe the ancient diet of the Pythagoreans, abstaining from fish altogether.[2] Another person of this name occurs in Plutarch.[3]
