Son of Arizelos; a profligate and a catamite. He first spent his time in Peiraieus with Euthydikos, but later hired himself out to Misgolas and to Hegesandros, the beloved of Leodamas,[1] and together with them associated with Pittalakos, the public slave. He was chosen as a guardian, but Aristogeiton objected and he was prevented [sc. from acting in that capacity]. He repudiated his uncle, a blind man who was eligible for support as disabled, and he did not even protect his mother when she was in need of basics.[2] In his old age he was convicted by Aeschines of prostitution.

C4 BCE. Between the introductory and concluding sentences, some of this material derives (ultimately) from Aeschines 1.40ff (web address 1), but see n.2 below.
[1] cf. mu 1111, where this statement is misleadingly compressed.
[2] For the uncle, Arignotos, see Aeschines 1.102-4 (web address 2) -- but there is nothing there (or anywhere else in the speech) about Aristogeiton, for whose speech Against Timarchos see alpha 3912. Fisher (below) 22-3 notes that the attested activity of Aristogeiton does not begin until 338 (i.e. several decades after Timarchos came of age), and he tentatively suggests that this guardianship case was a later one, unconnected with Arignotos.
