Surnamed Julius, son of Atticus the son of Plutarch,[1] a member of the Aeacid family; an Athenian, of the deme Marathon. Sophist. He was extremely wealthy, so much so that he built a stadium and a roofed theatre for the Athenians. His father was governor of Asia, and was included among those who held the consulship twice. He lived under the emperors Trajan, Hadrian and Marcus Antoninus, and was taught by Favorinus[2] and Polemo.[3] He wrote Ephemerides, an extremely learned composition, and letters and improvisatory speeches; Philostratus mentions them in the Lives of the Sophists. Hadrian[4] the sophist succeeded him as head of his school. Herodes was a contemporary of the sophist Aristides.[5] Very many other works by him are preserved, in which the greatness and elevation of his spirit can be observed and are displayed throughout. He died of consumption aged about 76.
