Headword: Isidôros
Adler number: iota,631
Translated headword: Isidore, Isidoros
Vetting Status: high
Philosopher; he learned philosophy under his brothers, being exceptionally attentive in his studies and in religion; he was competent in the extreme, so to speak, in arranging everything for religious cult. As it seems to me, in his life-style he was a philosopher, but in understanding he was not well approved, being unpracticed rather than untalented in dialectic. When he was young something remarkable happened. His sister's son, an age-mate of his, who was 18 years old, having demonstrated already in youth a miraculous natural force, fell from the roof and died instantly. When great mourning for him ensued, he came in a dream and consoled Isidore for this.
