C4 BCE; see generally OCD(4) s.v. (p.53). Allegedly the teacher of both Aeschines (so alphaiota 347) and Demosthenes (so delta 454).
[1] The specification ensures that this is understood as Elea (or Elaea) in Aeolis, Asia Minor; there were several homonyms.
[2] Mouseion is given as the title of this work (by the son, not, as here, the father): see Stobaeus, Florilegium 4.52.22.
