So'phocles

4. An Athenian orator, whose oration for Euctemon is quoted by Aristotle. (Rhet. 1.15.) Ruhnken supposes that it was he, and not the poet, who was one of the Probuli, and that he was the same as the Sophocles who is mentioned by Xenophon (Xen. Hell. 2.3.2) as one of the Thirty Tyrants. (Hist. Crit. Orat. Graec., No. viii.)
