[1] RE Theopompos(9); OCD4 Theopompus; FGrH 115.
[2] The 93rd Olympiad spanned the years 408-405, and the Athenian anarchia was the year 404/3, when democracy in Athens gave way to the rule of the Thirty Tyrants. An alternative tradition, preferred by most modern scholars, puts the birth of Theopompus much later, in c.377. For doubts about the reliability of either, see M.A. Flower, Theopompus of Chios (Oxford 1994) 14-17.
