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]
Greek Original:
Ἀριστείδης, Ἀδριανεὺς, σοφιστής [Ἀδριανοὶ δὲ πόλις Μυσίας, τῆς νῦν Βιθυνίας], Πολέμωνος τοῦ Σμυρναίου ῥήτορος μαθητὴς, υἱὸς Εὐδαίμονος, φιλοσόφου τε καὶ ἱερέως γενομένου τοῦ ἐν τῇ πατρίδι αὐτοῦ ἱεροῦ τοῦ Διός. οἱ δὲ Εὐδαίμονα τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ γράφουσιν. ἠκροάσατο δὲ Ἡρώδου κατὰ τὰς Ἀθήνας καὶ ἐν Περγάμῳ Ἀριστοκλέους, γεγονὼς ἐπί τε Ἀντωνίνου τοῦ Καίσαρος καὶ διατείνας μέχρι Κομόδου. τῶν δὲ λόγων αὐτοῦ παρ' οὐδενὶ πέρας εὕροι τις ἂν, ἄλλως δὲ ἄλλοις ἐπιτευχθέντας.

[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 τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ to οὐ τὸν πατέρα ἀλλ' αὐτόν .
[4] [eta 545] Herodes.
[5] [alpha 3918] Aristocles.
[6] The sense of the last sentence is obscure; the text may be corrupt.
