Apollonios had a dispute with this man. "For this man was thought and believed to be a parricide, but he pretended to a wisdom of his own, and no bridle could be set upon his tongue. But Apollonios put a stop to his reviling, both by sending him letters and by making speeches against him. For everything which he said about his being a parricide was thought to be true, for it was thought that such a man would not have condescended to personal abuse and would not have said what was not true."[1]
