During his speech Against Leocrates, the Athenian orator Lykourgus mentions the name of Amintas, a brother-in-law of Leocrates. This dark character has not attracted so much attention by the researchers. Nevertheless, we know by the Attic prosopography that this is the first person we know in Athens with this name. Amintas is also a usual name among the Macedonians. As far as a lot of elements linked Leocrates and the trial against him with Macedonian politics and the struggle against Athens, we must observe the information about person named Amintas in the context of this conflict in the aftermath of Chaeroneia.
