17211804, Aug 9
an English clergyman of the Church of England, translator, poet and pamphleteer. He established the convention of using blank verse for Greek hexameters and rhymed verse for choruses. In 1788, Lewis Bagot, Bishop of Norwich, presented Potter as vicar to the combined parishes of Lowestoft and Kessingland, Suffolk, and as a prebendary of Norwich Cathedral, through the patronage of Lord Chancellor Lord Thurlow, who had attended Seckar's School. Potter completed versions of the plays of Æschylus (1777), Euripides (1781–83) and Sophocles (1788) that remained in print through the 19th century.
