Of Pergamum, a priest and philosopher. I found[1] in an ancient book the following epigram about him: "I am Charax, a priest from the venerable heights of Pergamum, where once Telephus, blameless son of blameless Heracles, fought a war against city-destroying Achilles."[2] He is much later than the ones after Augustus. At any rate, in the second of the books he mentions Augustus, as having become Caesar long ago, and in the seventh [book] Nero and the emperors after him. He wrote Greek and [Roman?] histories,[3] in 40 [books].

[3] 'Roman' was Jacoby's tentative suggestion to fill this lacuna (left blank by Adler). An alternative, deriving support from Eustathius, is 'Italic' (Westermann).
