Third magistrate attested in Athens in 135/134 BC. From Philaidai. Son of the other Nikogenes, who signed as third magistrate in the same issue 30 as well. Thus he held the third magistracy in the same year as his father. To distinguish two persons he was explicitly named "the younger" (ΝΙΚΟΓ ΝΕ[ώτερος]): See M.
