Hippias of Elis


Greek Sophist philosopher, a contemporary of Socrates. He was vividly portrayed in Plato's dialogues as a virtuoso performer as teacher, orator, memory man, and polymath. He also discovered a curve used for trisecting a triangle (the quadratrix). Only fragments of his vast literary output have survived.
