From the actual Classical age. I've always been curious about this.

Literary texts? None. Inscriptional evidence aplenty, but for the most part that's lists of winners in games, treaties, etc.

Somewhere in my brain is the idea that a minor orator survives from the early Hellenistic period, but neither my brain nor my google-fu can unearth the author right now.
