Isocrates (436-338BC), an ancient Greek rhetorician and one of the ten Attic Orators, was probably the most influential rhetorician of his time. His contribution to education and rhetoric was considerable.
Sophocles (497/6-406/5BC) is one of the three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays have survived. Those of Aeschylus and Euripides are the only others. Sophocles had a great influence on the development of drama and of characterisation.
