Sophist, specialising in rhetoric. He was the offspring ultimately of the holy Marcella,[1] and immediately on his father's side of Ecdicius, also a teacher of the art of rhetoric. This Theon was not particularly acute or quick-witted, but he was a devoted student and extraordinarily hard-working; hence he became very learned in a short time, gaining an extensive knowledge both of ancient and of modern history.
