This information pertains to Ephoros of Kyme, FGrH 70 T1 (see epsilon 3953, cf. 3952). There was, admittedly, a C4 BC historian called Ephippos, son of Khalkideus, of Olynthus (FGrH 126); he is mentioned in Alexander's entourage in Egypt (Arrian, Anabasis 3.5.3), and he was author of a work on the deaths of Hephaistion and Alexander the Great; see in brief OCD(4) p.509, 'Ephippus(2)'. Nevertheless "Ephippos" as the headword of the present entry is simply taken over in error from the preceding one (epsilon 3929, on Ephippos the comic poet).
[1] In Asia Minor; kappa 2685.
[2] 408-405.
[3] The Inventions was significant enough to be mentioned (together with the big History) by Strabo 13.3.6.
