Theopompus of Chios (b. c. 378 B.C.)

Theopompus of Chios (thē”o-pom’pus). A Greek historian and rhetorician; born about 378 B.C. His principal historical works were ‘The Hellenics,’ in 12 books, and ‘The Philippics,’ in 58 books; the former being a continuation of Thucydides, and the latter a general history of his own times, with the reign of Philip of Macedon as central point: of both only fragments remain.
