Of Athens, tragedian, legitimate son of Sophokles the tragic poet[1] out of Nikostrate; [Sophokles] also had an illegitimate son, Ariston, out of Theodoris of Sikyon.[2] Iophon produced 50 plays; they include Achilles, Telephos, Aktaion, Sack of Troy, Receiver, Bakchai, Pentheus,[3] and certain others with his father Sophokles.[4]
Greek Original:
Ἰοφῶν, Ἀθηναῖος, τραγικός, υἱὸς Σοφοκλέους τοῦ τραγικοῦ γνήσιος ἀπὸ Νικοστράτης: γέγονε δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ νόθος υἱὸς Ἀρίστων ἀπὸ Θεοδωρίδος Σικυωνίας. δράματα δὲ Ἰοφῶν ἐδίδαξε ν#: ὧν ἐστιν Ἀχιλλεύς, Τήλεφος, Ἀκταίων, Ἰλίου πέρσις, Δεξαμενός, Βάκχαι, Πενθεύς, καὶ ἄλλα τινὰ μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς Σοφοκλέους.
C5 BCE. See generally TrGF vol 1 (edn.2, 1986) 132-5; OCD(4) s.v.
[1] See generally sigma 815.
[2] For the younger Sophocles, son of this Ariston, see sigma 816.
[3] The fact that six of these seven titles are attributed to the Athenian tragedian "Kleophon" at kappa 1730 seems enough to expose the latter name as a corruption: see the note there.
[4] The suspicion that Sophocles had substantially written the plays of Iophon goes back to the late C5 itself: see Aristophanes, Frogs 73-79.
