H.J. Rose (1883-1961), A Handbook of Greek Literature from Homer to the Age of Lucian, 5th ed. (1961; rpt. London: Methuen, 1965), p. 283:
Of Kephalos' two sons, one, Polemarchos, was put to death by the Thirty; Lysias escaped with the loss of most of his patrimony, and not unnaturally became a strong supporter of Thrasybulos and the democratic faction. After their triumph, he enjoyed citizenship for a little while, under a decree of Thrasybulos which granted it to resident aliens, and in 403 impeached Eratosthenes, one of the Thirty, in an attempt to take vengeance for the death of Polymarchos.
For Polymarchos read Polemarchos.

Xenophon, Cyropaedia, Books V-VIII. With an English Translation by Walter Miller (1914; rpt. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2000 = Loeb Classical Library, 52), p. 197 (translating 6.4.11):
And the people, beautiful as was the sight of Abradatas and his chariat, had no eyes for him, until Panthea was gone.
For chariat read chariot.
