Aenesidemus, tyrant of Leontini
Aenesidemus (Aenesidemos or Enesidemus), the son of Pataecus of Gela in Sicily, was made tyrant of Leontini in 498 BC by Hippocrates of Gela after aiding the latter in his effort to conquer south-eastern Sicily. Aenesidemus likely continued to hold Leontini at least until the death of Hippocrates in 491 BC.
