Son of Charmantides, of Leontini.[1] Rhetor. A pupil of Empedocles,[2] and teacher of Polus of Acragas,[3] Pericles,[4] Isocrates[5] and Alcidamas of Elea,[6] who succeeded him as head of his school. He was the brother of the doctor Herodicus. Porphyry places him in the 80th Olympiad;[7] but it has to be understood that he was older than that. This man was the first to give the rhetorical kind of education expressive force and artistry, making use of tropes, metaphors, allegory, hypallage, catachresis, hyperbaton, anadiplosis, epanalepsis, apostrophe and parisosis. He used to charge each of his pupils 100 minas. He lived 109 years, and composed many works.
