Athenian strategos (general) for home defence in 324/3. When Alexander died (323) Leosthenes and Hyperides persuaded Athens to fight the Macedonians. He was chiefly responsible for early allied successes which shut up Antipater in Lamia. His death that winter (323/2) devastated the Greek cause. In Athens Hyperides delivered the funeral speech (see epitaphios).
