Greek Original:
Ἱππίας, Διοπείθους, Ἠλεῖος, σοφιστὴς καὶ φιλόσοφος, μαθητὴς Ἡγησιδάμου, ὃς τέλος ὡρίζετο τὴν αὐτάρκειαν. ἔγραψε πολλά.
Notes:
C5 BC. See generally Diels-Kranz 86; Philostratus Lives of the Sophists 1.11; RE Hippias(13); W.K.C. Guthrie, The Sophists (Cambridge 1971) 280-5; OCD4 Hippias(2).
[1] Mentioned only here. Guthrie 283 compares the story in Plato, Hippias Minor 368B-D, that Hippias once went to Olympia wearing nothing that he had not made himself (clothes, ring, oil-flask, strigil), and notes that this is either support for or else (and more probably?) responsible for what the Suda claims.
