Siphnian Treasury

While Hyperphas is one of the more obscure of the Gigantes.  He does appear on the north frieze of the Siphnian Treasury at Delphi  (525 BC), which shows the most comprehensive treatment of the sixth century (more than thirty figures, named by inscription).  Hyperphas is shown among a group of three Gigantes including not only him but Alektos and an unnamed Gigante advancing on Apollo and Artemis.
