Hype'rbatas

2. General of the Achaeans in B. C. 179. The Romans having sent to require of the league the recal of all the Lacedaemonian exiles without distinction, Hyperbatus held an assembly, in which he urged, in opposition to Lycortas, the necessity of compliance with this request (Plb. 26.1.) On this occasion he took the same side with Callicrates, and we find him again, in B. C. 168, uniting with that unworthy statesman against the proposal of Lycortas and his party, to send assistance to the two Ptolemies in their war against Antiochus Epiphanes. (Id. 29.8.)
