But finding that Philip was unwilling to help him, Callias had recourse to the Athenians, although he had previously (350 B.C.) been engaged in hostilities with them.

Subsequently, when Philip's attention was engaged upon Thrace, the Athenians in conjunction with Callias drove out these tyrants, and Callias thus became master of the island (Demosthenes, De Pace, p.

 Science Fair Projects - Peace of Callias
The Peace of Callias was established around 449 BC between the Delian League (led by Athens) and Persia, ending the Persian Wars.
The Peace of Callias gave autonomy to the Ionian states in Asia Minor, prohibited the establishment of Persian satrapies elsewhere on the Aegean coast, and prohibited Persian ships from the Aegean.

Callias, whose love for Autolycus Socrates praises, is urged by Socrates to emulate the great statesmen of the past if he would prove himself worthy of the boy (8.39).
As such, he might be expected to worship at the altar of Pandemos, and Callias as pornos-politician recalls the Old Comic joke of representing democratic politicians as sexual pathics.
But there is a further irony in that Callias the politician could be thought of as a votary of this same goddess, though in her capacity as protectress of the democracy rather than as patroness of venal love.

When we entered, we found Protagoras taking a walk in the cloister; and next to him, on one side, were walking Callias, the son of Hipponicus, and Paralus, the son of Pericles, who, by the mother's side, is his half-brother, and Charmides, the son of Glaucon.
Suppose, said Callias, that we hold a council in which you may sit and discuss.-This was agreed upon, and great delight was felt at the prospect of hearing wise men talk; we ourselves took the chairs and benches, and arranged them by Hippias, where the other benches had been already placed.

One of his examples was the Peace of Callias, a treaty supposedly negotiated in 0449 by the Athenian Callias with King Ataxerxes of Persia.
Theopompus, reasoning similarly in his time, concluded that the supposed treaty of Callias must be a later patriotic fabrication, and that there had originally been no treaty at all.
The Peace of Callias, and the Athenian greatness which it emblematizes, tend to be embedded in the minds of those who hold Athens dear; they are part of the mental territory of the Hellenists.

Callias and Theodorus I am trying to understand what Plato is doing with a couple of lines in Theaetetus, at 165a.
This is the same Callias whom Socrates makes fun of in a cryptic passage in Apology.
Also, I think that the confession Theodorus makes here is a signficant confession, important for reading the Theaetetus and for understanding Plato's view of the failures of leadership in Athens during and after the war with Sparta.

In Metaphysics Book Z, chapter eight, Aristotle seems to say that Callias and Socrates are compounds of matter and form—compounds that have the same form but are individuated by their matter.
Stipulate that the material elements that compose Callias are redistributed to serve as the material elements of Socrates, and that Callias and Socrates share the same form, i.e., that of being a human.
As it has been assumed that that which has the same form and the same matter is the same thing, Socrates and Callias will, and of course will not, so runs the reductio ad absurdum, be identical.
