Of Hadriani. Sophist.[1] (Hadriani is a city in Mysia, now Bithynia.) Pupil of the rhetor Polemo of Smyrna.[2] Son of Eudaemon, who was a philosopher and priest in the temple of Zeus in his native city. Others write that his father was Eudaemon.[3] He attended Herodes' classes in Athens,[4] and those of Aristocles in Pergamum.[5] He lived under Antoninus Caesar, and survived until Commodus. As for his speeches, one would not find an end to them anywhere, and they are in different ways and in different respects successful.[6]

[2] [pi 1889] Polemo.
[3] This obscure sentence perhaps arises from a confused memory of Philostratus' pun: 'Aristides, either the son of Eudaemon [Eudaimonos] or himself fortunate [eudaimona].' In any event, Adler (addenda) notes Masson's proposed emendation of to\n pate/ra au)tou= to ou) to\n pate/ra a)ll' au)to/n.
[4] [eta 545] Herodes.
[5] [alpha 3918] Aristocles.
