Στίλπων). A celebrated philosopher, who was a native of Megara, and taught philosophy in his native town. He is said to have surpassed his contemporaries in inventive power and dialectic art, and to have inspired almost all Greece with a devotion to the ethical Megarian philosophy, dwelling especially upon the conception of virtue and its consideration (Diog. Laert. ii. 113-118; Epist. 9).
