3. Archon Eponymus of the year B. C. 330. (Diod. 17.62 Plut. Dem. 24
.) Theophrastus (Charact.
8) calls this Aristophon an orator.
That this man, who was archon in the same year in which Demosthenes delivered his oration on the crown, was not the same as the Colyttian, s clear from that oration itself, in which (p. 281) the Colyttian is spoken of as deceased. Whether he was actually an orator, as Theophrastus states, is very doubtful, since it is not mentioned anywhere else, and it is a probable conjecture of Ruhnken's that the word ῥήτωρ
was inserted by some one who believed that either the Azenian or Colyttian was meant in that passage. (Clinton, F. H.
ad ann. 330.)
