Archidamus I

Archidamus I (Ancient Greek: Ἀρχίδαμος Α΄) was a king of Sparta, 12th of the Eurypontids.

He was a son of Anaxidamus and contemporary with the Tegeatan War, which followed soon after the end of the second Messenian, in 668 BC. (Paus. iii. 7. § 69 comp. 3. § 5.) He married Lampito, the daughter of his grandfather Leotychides, who gave birth to his son by whom he was succeeded, Agasicles.
