Anaximenes of Lampsacus (fl. 380 - 320 BC), Greek rhetorician and historian, was a favourite of Alexander the Great, whom he accompanied in his Persian campaigns. He wrote histories of Greece and of Philip of Macedon, and an epic on Alexander (fragments in Muller, Scriptores Rerum Alexandri Magni.) As a rhetorician, he was a determined opponent of Isocrates and his school. The Rhetorica ad Alexandrum ("Address to Alexander"), traditionally included among the works of Aristotle, is now generally admitted to be by Anaximenes, although some consider it a much later production.
