The son of the above-mentioned,[1] who flourished in the reign of Marcus Antoninus. He too wrote Theurgica, Telestica, and oracles in epic verse, and other [works] which happen to be occult [treatises] on this kind of knowledge.
On one occasion, when the Romans were suffering from thirst, [the story goes that] this man suddenly created and summoned up dark-coloured clouds and let loose heavy rain along with thunder and lightning bolts one after another. And this [they say that] by some cleverness Julian achieved. But others assert that it was Arnouphis, the Egyptian philosopher, who made this miracle.[2]
