[son] of Pancratius;[1] a Cappadocian from Caesarea.[2] Sophist. He studied in Antioch with Ulpian.[3] He lived before Libanius,[4] and was a sophist in Athens; he received the highest honours from the emperor Constantine.[5] [He wrote] rhetorical exercises.
This man's floruit was under Julian,[6] contemporary with the sophist Libanius. To cause him distress Julian was a great admirer of Libanius.
