Headword: Δείναρχος
Adler number: delta,333
Translated headword: Dinarchus, Deinarchos
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A Corinthian, a rhetor, one of those ranked with Demosthenes. Whose son he is, is not recorded.[1] He wrote (according to some) 160 speeches in all; but a more accurate figure is only 60, all of them judicial; some are public, some private. This man died, having been appointed supervisor of the Peloponnese by Antipater, after Antipater's death; Polysperchon had plotted against him.[2]
Greek Original:
Δείναρχος, Κορίνθιος, ῥήτωρ, τῶν μετὰ Δημοσθένους ἐγκριθέντων εἷς. υἱὸς τίνος ἐστίν, οὐχ ἱστόρηται. γράψας κατὰ μέν τινας λόγους τοὺς πάντας ρξ#, κατὰ δὲ τὸ ἀληθέστερον μόνους ξ#, τοὺς πάντας δικανικούς: ὧν οἱ μέν εἰσι δημόσιοι, οἱ δὲ ἰδιωτικοί. ἐτελεύτησε δὲ οὗτος ἐπιμελητὴς Πελοποννήσου καταστὰς ὑπὸ Ἀντιπάτρου, μετὰ τὸ τελευτῆσαι Ἀντίπατρον, Πολυσπέρχοντος αὐτῷ ἐπιβουλεύσαντος.
Notes:
C4 BC. See generally RE Deinarchos(1); NP Deinarchos; OCD4 Dinarchus.
[1] Other sources did record the name of his father, as either Socrates or Sostratus.
[2] This account of his death confuses him with a Corinthian politician of the same name (RE Deinarchos(2)); see Worthington (1992) 10.
