He was a demagogue, whom Thucydides in [book] 8 says was ostracized.[1]

From Harpokration (and Photius) s.v. Hyperbolos -- but the Suda mss do corrupt the name to Hyperboros (and observe the alphabetical order of the corrupted version). For the real thing see under upsilon 245.
[1] Thucydides 8.73.3 (web address 1). For ostracism see generally omicron 716, omicron 717.
