Translation:
Son of Cydimachus or Lysimachus, of Athens.[1] Rhetor. His mother was a freedwoman. He was nicknamed 'Dog' because of his shamelessness. He was put to death by the Athenians. His speeches were: Defence in reply to Demosthenes the general,[2] In reply to Lycurgus, Prosecution of Timotheus, Prosecution of Timarchus,[3] Prosecution of Hyperides, Prosecution of Thrasyllus. Orphan Speech.
Investigate this Aristogiton: perhaps he is the comrade of Harmodius.[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀριστογείτων, Κυδιμάχου ἢ Λυσιμάχου, Ἀθηναῖος, ῥήτωρ, μητρὸς δὲ ἀπελευθερικῆς: ὅστις ἐπεκαλεῖτο κύων διὰ τὴν ἀναίδειαν αὐτοῦ. ἐφονεύθη δὲ ὑπὸ Ἀθηναίων, λόγους ποιήσας, Ἀπολογίαν πρὸς Δημοσθένην τὸν στρατηγὸν, Πρὸς Λυκοῦργον, Κατὰ Τιμοθέου, Κατὰ Τιμάρχου, Κατὰ Ὑπερίδου, Κατὰ Θρασύλλου, Ὀρφανικόν. ζήτει περὶ τοῦδε τοῦ Ἀριστογείτονος, μήποτέ ἐστιν οὗτος ὁ Ἁρμοδίου ἑταῖρος.
Notes:
[1] Identical with [alpha 3913] Aristogiton. See generally RE Aristogeiton(2); NP Aristogeiton(2); and further below, under Bibliography.
[2] Adler (addenda) notes Gutschmid's proposed emendation to Defence of the generals in reply to Demosthenes.
[3] See under tau 595.
[4] Chronologically impossible, with almost two centuries separating them (for Aristogiton and Harmodius the C6 tyrannicides see alpha 3975, and OCD(4) 156-7); and there is no reason to think they were even related.
