*(/Ipparxos), literary.

1. An Athenian comic poet. Suidas (s. v.) assigns him to the old comedy; but from what he adds, that "his dramas were about marriages," and from the extant titles of his plays, namely, Ἀνασωζόμενοι, Παννυχίς, Θαί̂ς, and Ζωγράφος, it is evident that Hipparchus belonged to the new comedy. He was probably contemporary with Diphilus and Menander. (Meineke, Frag. Com. Graec. vol. i. p. 457, vol. iv. p. 431; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. ii. p. 451.)
