This man showed what sort of person he was in spirit: when a lot of his possessions had been plundered, since he perceived that Theagenes, who was still a little child, was grieving over what had been lost and pillaged, said, "Theagenes, you must take heart and join me in thank-offerings to the gods for the safety of our bodies, but don't be discouraged about the money. For if Athena Polias had ordered it to be spent for the Panathenaia,[1] how great an an expense would we have paid? But the present struggle we must consider to be part of the Panathenaia, and more glorious and more pious than any other."

According to Athanassiadi (page 251 note 277), this Archiadas was the grandson of Plutarch and Proclus' closest friend. For another Archiadas see epsilon 3650.
