This man associated with Musonius from Pamphylia; [he was] a man who, like a standard, was perfected in every virtue; for Musonius, being a lover of goodness and nobility, drew them from everywhere to himself, like a magnet [draws] iron. It was impossible to test what sort of man so-and-so was, but hearing he was a friend of Musonius, [it was possible] to know that he was good.
