Headword: Ἡγήσιππος
Adler number: eta,57
Translated headword: Hegesippos, Hegesippus

Translation:
This man is the one nicknamed Topknot[1], whom some believe to be the author of the Seventh Philippic [of] Demosthenes.[2]
Amongst his plays is Philetairoi, according to Athenaeus.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἡγήσιππος: οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ Ἀρώβυλος ἐπικαλούμενος, οὗ δοκεῖ τις εἶναι ὁ ζ# Φίλιππος Δημοσθένης ἐπιγραφόμενος. τῶν δραμάτων αὐτοῦ ἐστι Φιλέταιροι, ὡς Ἀθήναιος.
Notes:
From Harpokration s.v., garbled throughout, and with a particularly infelicitous extra paragraph: see n.3 below.
[1] "Krobylos", Harpokration and elsewhere; "Arobylos" (meaningless), Suda.
[2] That is, [Demosthenes] 7, On Halonnesos. See, on this and on H. generally, OCD(4) p.652, s.v. "Hegesippus(1)".
[3] Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 7.279D (7.9 Kaibel). The mistake is arguably less egregious than the equivalent one with Hegemon (see eta 53); nevertheless H. the poet of New Comedy is someone else. See generally OCD(4) p.652, s.v. "Hegesippus(2)"; Kassel-Austin, PCG 5.548-551.
