Headword: Ὑπερίδης
Adler number: upsilon,295
Translated headword: Hyperides, Hypereides
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Hyperides,[1] an excellent demagogue. Although he was a friend of Demosthenes, he brought a prosecution against him in connection with Harpalus' money. [2] He had a son, Glaucippus.
Greek Original:
Ὑπερίδης, δημαγωγὸς ἄριστος: ὃς καὶ φίλος ὢν Δημοσθένει ἐγράψατο αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τοῖς Ἁρπαλείοις χρήμασιν. ἔσχε δὲ καὶ παῖδα Γλαύκιππον.
Notes:
[1] Identical with [upsilon 294] Hyperides, q.v. for references.
[2] This speech, from 323 BC, survives in fragmentary form. (It was not, as implied here, a private prosecution by Hyperides; he was one of ten prosecutors appointed by the Athenian state.) On the Harpalus Affair -- fleetingly mentioned at alpha 4000 ("Harpaleian monies"), more fully at delta 456 - see e.g. A.B. Bosworth, Conquest and Empire: the reign of Alexander the Great (Cambridge 1988) 215-220; C.W. Blackwell, In the Absence of Alexander: Harpalus and the failure of Macedonian authority (New York etc. 1999).
