"[Sallustius] was an adequate speaker, not imitating the more recent sophists, but associating himself with the ancient patina of speech-writing." Damaskios says [this].
Greek Original:
*pi/nos. o( de\ h)=n kai\ le/gein i(kano/s, ou) tou\s newte/rous e)kmimou/menos sofista/s, a)lla\ pro\s to\n a)rxai=on pi/non th=s logografi/as a(millw/menos. fhsi\ *dama/skios.
From Damascius, Life of Isidore fr.250 Asmus; cf. Photius, Bibliotheca 350b 24-26. The passage is quoted more fully at sigma 62. As fr.138a Zintzen the passage loses its relevance to the present entry because pi/non is replaced by Photius' more neutral to/non. Zintzen however notes that Damascius sine dubio used pi/non.
cf. under kappa 165, and more generally pi 1620.
