From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Epicleidas (Epikleidas) was the brother of Cleomenes III, king of Sparta. According to Pausanias,[1], Cleomenes poisoned Eurydamidas his colleague of the house of Proclus, and shared the royal power with his brother Epicleidas. The latter afterwards fell in the battle of Sellasia in 222 BC.
