Abstract: An example is given to show that the antipode of a finite dimensional Hopf algebra over a field of prime characteristic $ p > 2$ need not be semisimple. (For $ p = 2$ examples were previously known.) The example is a pointed irreducible Hopf algebra $ H$ (with antipode $ S$) of dimension $ {p^3}$ such that $ {S^{2p}} = I \ne {S^2}$.
