Lamprocles (Greek: Λαμπροκλῆς) was Socrates and Xanthippe's eldest son. His two brothers were Menexenus and Sophroniscus. Lamprocles was only a boy (μειράκιον meirakion) at the time of Socrates' trial and death. According to Aristotle, Socrates' descendants as a whole turned out to be unremarkable: "silly and dull".
