Lamprias (Greek: Λαμπρίας) was Plutarch's grandfather as he attested in Moralia,[1] and in his Life of Antony. According to Plutarch, Lamprias was a man of eloquence and imagination. His name is also given by Suida. Very little is known of his life, although he probably lived in Chaeronea of Boeotia, in Southern Greece. Lamprias was also the name of Plutarch's brother and one of his sons.
