Son of a royal banker; of Alexandria. Rhetor. Some say he was Egyptian. Under Pompey the Great he was taken as a prisoner to Rome by Gabinius, and bought by Faustus, the son of Sulla. He was a sophist in Rome in the time of Pompey himself, and after him of Caesar Augustus and subsequently, at the same time as Caecilius.[1] Expelled from his school for being too freely spoken, he spent his time in countryside known as Tusculum.[2] He died in Albanum, trying to vomit after dinner and choking.[3] He wrote many books.
