Sophist.[1] An Isaurian by birth;[2] he was highly reputed among the mass of fellow-professionals in Alexandria. He not only allowed Proclus[3] to share in his discourses, but thought it right to have him share his house and admitted him to share meals with his wife and children, as if he also were a legitimate son. He also introduced him to those who held the reins of Egypt.
