Calliphon in Wikipedia

Calliphon (or Callipho, Greek: Καλλιφῶν; 2nd century BC) was a Greek philosopher, who probably belonged to the Peripatetic school and lived in the 2nd century BC.[1] He is mentioned several times and condemned by Cicero as making the chief good of man to consist in a union of virtue (Latin: honestas) and bodily pleasure (Greek: ἡδονή, Latin: voluptas), or, as Cicero says, in the union of the human with the beast.[2]
