A deserter, Cilician by birth, who at first pretended to be a philosopher in the Cynic manner[1] and in this way was a very great help to the soldiers in the war. For when they were in pain from the great cold he encouraged them, throwing [himself] into the snow and rolling in it; hence both the money and the honours that he received from Severus and Antoninus.[2] But spurred on by this he joined Tiridates, with whom he deserted to the Parthians.
