Menekles or Kallistrates[1] in the [treatise] About Athenians writes thus: "for after the Painted [Stoa] and the Royal Stoa are the so-called Herms".[2] Some used to be called Hipparcheian Herms, after Hipparchos the son of Peisistratos.
Greek Original:
Hermai: Meneklês ê Kallistratês en tôi peri Athênaiôn graphei tauti: apo gar tês Poikilês kai tês tou basileôs stoas eisin hoi Hermai kaloumenoi. ekalounto de tines kai Hipparcheioi Hermai apo Hipparchou tou Peisistratou.
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.
