Hyperides,[1] son of the rhetor Glaucippus (some say of Pythocles); of Athens. Rhetor; one of the ten ranked first.[2] He studied at the same time as Lycurgus with Plato the philosopher [and] Isocrates the rhetor.[3] He turned out an able orator, but had a weakness for women. He too was killed by Antipater the king,[4] who had him dragged out of the temple of Demeter in Hermione by Archias (nicknamed 'Exile-hunter'); his tongue was cut out, and he died. His son Glaucippus received his remains, and placed them in the family tomb. His speeches are 56 in all.[5]

[1] RE Hypereides; OCD4 Hyperides. Identical with [upsilon 295].
[2] OCD(4) pp.203-4, s.v. "Attic Orators".
[3] [iota 652] Isocrates; [pi 1709] Plato.
[4] The "too" implies a connection -- not actually explicit here -- with Demosthenes (see delta 454). For Antipater, see alpha 2703, alpha 2704.
[5] Other estimates are higher still. See Whitehead (below) 1-2.
