Antiphon, the celebrated sophist, orator, and politician, was a native of Attica, and established himself in 430 B.C. at Athens, where he instructed Thucydides, who speaks of him with honour. He assisted in setting up the tyranny of the Four Hundred, and on its collapse (411 B.C.) he was put to death.
