The Athenian lawyer-politician Hypereides (390/89-322 BC)-- a central figure in Athenian political life, patriot, bon viveur, contemporary of Demosthenes, and one of the canonical Ten Attic Orators--was credited in antiquity with more than seventy speeches. All were lost until the second half of the nineteenth century, when papyrus finds in Egypt recovered (in whole or part) six, five of them forensic. David Whitehead has for the first time provided a complete commentary on all five of the surviving forensic speeches. This book includes a general introduction, a new and accurate translation, and lavish historical and literary commentary.
