An Athenian, a rhetor, a clever man who wrote the two speeches against Sokrates, for Anytos and Meletos.
Greek Original:
*polukra/ths, *)aqhnai=os, r(h/twr, deino/s te kai\ tou\s kata\ *swkra/tous lo/gous b# *)anu/tw| kai\ *melh/tw| gra/yas.
c.440-370 BCE; OCD4 Polycrates(2).
On Socrates see generally sigma 829, and for his prosecutors (in 399) Anytos and Meletos, alpha 2800, mu 498. Whatever the author or source of the present entry thought, Polykrates did not supply any speeches for the actual trial. Rather, his rhetorical Prosecution of Sokrates was written 6-7 years later; and the so-called Apologies (= Defence Speeches) by Plato and Xenophon were perhaps responses to it.
