ANAXANDER (Ἀνάξανδρος), king of Sparta, 12th of the Agids, son of Eurycrates, is named by Pausanias as commanding against Aristomenes, and to the end of the second Messenian war, B. C. 668; but probably on mere conjecture from the statement of Tyrtaeus (given by Strabo, viii. p. 362), that the grandfathers fought in the first, the grandsons in the second. (Pans. iii. 3, 14. §4, iv. 15. §1, 16. §5, 22. §3; Plut. Apophth. Lac.)
