Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting in the first instance on Aeschines 3.187.
[1] Harpok. gives this second name as Kallikrates; cf. kappa 1354.
[2] Menekles of Barka [C2 BCE] FGrH 270 F2. The more correct title of the work, in Harpok., is About Athens. For herms cf. epsilon 3051; for Menekles cf. delta 589, kappa 1354.
