Lamprias (Greek: Λαμπρίας) was Plutarch's grandfather as he attested in Moralia,[1] and in his Life of Antony. According to Plutarch, Lamprias was a man of eloquence and imagination. His name is also given by Suida. Very little is known of his life, although he probably lived in Chaeronea of Boeotia, in Southern Greece.
