Aristogenes (general)

Aristogenes (Ancient Greek: Ἀριστογένης) of Athens was an ancient Greek general during the Peloponnesian War, who was one of the ten commanders appointed to supersede Alcibiades after the battle of Notium in 407 BCE.[1][2][3]

He was one of the eight who conquered Callicratidas at the Battle of Arginusae in 406 BCE; and Protomachus and himself, by not returning to Athens after the battle, escaped execution -- the fate of their six remaining colleagues -- though a sentence of condemnation was passed against them in their absence.[4][5]
