Hypophora (ὑποφορἁ_ putting under) is the statement of an objection (together with its refutation) which a speaker supposes to be made by an opponent or makes himself. Both objection and reply often take the form of questions ( cross2654, cross2785, cross2819). Cp. “But I hear it continually rung in my ears . . . ‘what will become of the preamble, if you repeal this tax?’”: Burke.

τί οὖν, ἄν τις εἴποι, ταῦτα λέγεις ἡμῖν νῦν; ἵνα γνῶτ' κτλ. why then, some one will say, do you tell us this now? In order that you may know, etc. D. 1.14.
