Nicocles (Greek: Νικοκλῆς; ruled 251 BC) was a tyrant of the ancient Greek city-state of Sicyon in the 3rd century BC; to which position he raised himself in 251 BC by the murder of Paseas, who had succeeded his son Abantidas in the sovereign power. He had reigned only four months, during which period he had already driven into exile eighty of the citizens, when the citadel of Sicyon (which had narrowly escaped falling into the hands of the Aetolians shortly before) was surprised in the night by a party of Sicyonian exiles, headed by young Aratus. The palace of the tyrant was set on fire, but Nicocles himself made his escape by a subterranean passage, and fled from the city. Of his subsequent fortunes nothing is known.

  • Nícocles foi um tirano de Sicião. Nícocles tornou-se tirano ao matar traiçoeiramente o tirano anterior, Paseas, pai de Abantidas. Ele governou por quatro meses, durante os quais fez muito mal à cidade, quase perdendo-a para a Liga Etólia. Nicoles temia Arato, um dos exilados, temendo que ele estivesse aliado aos reis macedônios, e enviou espiões a Argos para saber o que Arato estava fazendo. Arato, porém, agiu de forma aberta como se passasse o tempo todo em prazeres e banquetes, enganando os espiões. Arato, porém, juntou seus soldados e, de noite, entrou na cidadela e capturou os soldados, sem matar nenhum deles. Com a chegada do dia, um arauto clamou ao povo que Arato, filho de Cleinias, estava convidando os cidadão para a liberdade; o povo, então, cercou o palácio de Nícocles carregando tochas, e queimou o palácio (o fogo pode ser visto de Corinto). Nícocles, porém, conseguiu escapar por uma passagem subterrânea, e fugiu da cidade. A casa de Nícocles foi pilhada, e sua fortuna distribuída entre os cidadãos; mas nesta revolução nenhuma pessoa foi morta ou ferida. Sicião, então, junta-se à Liga Aqueia. (pt)
