2. An Attic orator and contemporary of Demosthenes, with whom he opposed the Macedonian party. He is mentioned as one of the most eminent speakers of the time. (Dem. de Fals. Leg. pp. 368, 403, 436, c. Lept. p. 498; Harpocrat. and Suid. s. v. Μελάνωπος.) Reiske, in the Index to Demosthenes, believes him to be the same as the author of the psephisma mentioned by Demosthenes (de Fals. Leg. p. 368), and also identical with the one who, according to Diodorus (16.48), assisted the king of Persia in his Egyptian war, in B. C. 350.
