Headword: Ἵπυς
Adler number: iota,591
Translated headword: Hipys, Hippys
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Of Rhegium,[1] a historian, lived at the time of the Persian Wars, and was the first to write about events in Sicily; Myes[3] later produced an abridged version. [He wrote] Foundation of Italy; History of Sicily, 5 books, Chronologies [likewise] in 5 books; History of Argos [Myth, Place] in 3.
This man[4] was the first to write parodies and choliambics and other [such] things.
Greek Original:
Ἵπυς, Ῥηγῖνος, ἱστορικός, γεγονὼς ἐπὶ τῶν Περσικῶν, καὶ πρῶτος ἔγραψε τὰς Σικελικὰς πράξεις, ἃς ὕστερον Μύης ἐπετέμετο: Κτίσιν Ἰταλίας, Σικελικῶν βιβλία ε#, Χρονικὰ ἐν βιβλίοις ε#, Ἀργολικῶν γ#. οὗτος πρῶτος ἔγραψε παρῳδίαν καὶ χωλίαμβον καὶ ἄλλα.
Notes:
FGrH 554 (testimonia and purported fragments). The authentic version of his name is the -pp- one, as in Stephanus of Byzantium (s.v. Arkadia) and elsewhere. See generally Lionel Pearson, The Greek Historians of the West (Atlanta 1987) 8-10, summarizing the case for and against Hippys' historicity and gently insisting on the strength of the latter.
[1] At the toe-end of Italy (rho 122).
[2] i.e. the first quarter of the C5 BCE.
[3] Otherwise unknown.
[4] Surely not Hip(p)ys but Hipponax (iota 588), as Kuster suggested.
Keywords: biography; chronology; geography; historiography; history; poetry
