Headword: *pwli/wn
Adler number: pi,2165
Translated headword: Polio, Polion
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Surnamed Asinius;[1] of Tralles.[2] Sophist and philosopher. He was a sophist in Rome in the time of Pompey the Great, and succeeded Timagenes[3] as the head of his school. He wrote an epitome of Philochorus' Atthis;[4] Memoirs of the philosopher Musonius;[5] an epitome of Diophanes' Georgica (2 books);[6] Against Aristotle, on Animals (10 books); on the Roman civil war, fought between Caesar and Pompey.[7]

Notes:
C1 BC. See generally RE Asinius(23); PIR2 A 1239; FGrH 193 (this testimonium only, plus the 'Roman Civil War' title, on which see further below).
[1] He is not to be confused with a much better-known namesake: C. Asinius Pollio (76 BC- AD 4), consul in 40 BC and, in retirement from public life, author of a history of the period 60-42. The present individual is taken to be the historian's freedman.
[2] In Caria/Lydia (Barrington Atlas map 61 grid F1).
[3] tau 588: Timagenes.
[4] phi 441: Philochorus.
[5] mu 1305: Musonius -- but Musonius is too late for this man to have written about him; hence the suggested attribution of this phrase (noted by Adler) to pi 2166.
[6] RE Diophanes(9).
[7] See above, n.1. Jacoby (in the commentary to FGrH 193) briefly airs two possibilities about this: that the present attribution of such a work to P. of Tralles is the result of confusion between him and his patron, or that this was a Greek edition/translation.

Headword: *sfhnwqei/s
Adler number: sigma,1740
Translated headword: after choking
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
This Timagenes was invited to dinner and died after choking.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] sfhnou/menos ["he being choked"], [meaning he] being racked, being tortured.[2]

Notes:
[1] See under tau 588.
[2] This present middle/passive participle -- the headword itself is aorist passive -- also appears in other lexica, with these same glosses (for which cf. generally beta 137, sigma 1191). Most of its attestations are in medical writers, but this particular instance must be quoted from a different kind of context.

Headword: *timage/nhs
Adler number: tau,588
Translated headword: Timagenes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Son of a royal banker; of Alexandria. Rhetor. Some say he was Egyptian. Under Pompey the Great he was taken as a prisoner to Rome by Gabinius, and bought by Faustus, the son of Sulla. He was a sophist in Rome in the time of Pompey himself, and after him of Caesar Augustus and subsequently, at the same time as Caecilius.[1] Expelled from his school for being too freely spoken, he spent his time in countryside known as Tusculum.[2] He died in Albanum, trying to vomit after dinner and choking.[3] He wrote many books.

Headword: *ti/maios
Adler number: tau,600
Translated headword: Timaios, Timaeus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The historian [of that name].[1] This man has made a very severe attack on Ephorus,[2] though he is himself guilty of two faults: that he bitterly accuses others for things of which he is himself guilty, and that he shows an utterly depraved mind by putting out such statements in his works and [sc. thereby] engendering such opinions in his readers. If we are to lay it down that Callisthenes deserved his death,[3] what ought to happen to Timaeus? Surely there is much more reason for Providence to be wroth with him than with Callisthenes. The latter wished to deify Alexander [sc. the Great]; but Timaeus exalts Timoleon above the most venerable gods.[4] Callisthenes' hero, again, was a man by universal consent of a superhuman elevation of spirit; while Timoleon, far from having accomplished any action of first-rate importance, never even undertook one. The one expedition which he achieved in the course of his life took him no farther than from Corinth to Syracuse; and how paltry is such a distance when compared with the extent of the world! I presume that Timaeus believed that if Timoleon, by gaining glory in such a mere saucer of a place as Sicily, should be thought comparable to the most illustrious heroes, he too himself, as the historian of only Italy and Sicily, might properly be considered on a par with the writers of universal history.
He wrote Concerning Syria and its Cities and Kings in 3 books.[5]

Notes:
[1] Of Tauromenium (present-day Taormina) in Sicily; c.350-c.260 BCE. See also tau 602. The bulk of the present entry derives from Polybius 12.23.1-7 (cf. epsilon 1403), at the beginning of a long critique of Timaeus (and following one on Callisthenes, for whom see n. 3 below).
For T. see generally OCD(4) s.v. Timaeus(2). Driven out of Sicily by Agathocles in c.315, he moved to Athens, where he studied rhetoric under Philiscus of Miletus (phi 360) and lived for fifty years. During the reign of Hiero II, it seems, he returned to Sicily (probably to Syracuse), where he died. While at Athens he completed his principal historical work, The (Sicilian) Histories, probably in 38 books. This work was divided into unequal sections, containing the history of Greece from its earliest days until the First Punic War (though the coverage from 289/8 onwards may have been separate). Timaeus devoted much attention to chronology, and introduced the system of reckoning by Olympiads. This system, although not adopted in everyday life, was afterwards generally used by Greek historians.
For the surviving remains of T. see FGrH 566.
[2] Of Cyme; c.400-330 BCE. See epsilon 3930, epsilon 3953. Polybius himself (12.25f), while crediting Ephorus with a knowledge of the conditions of naval warfare, ridicules his description of the battles of Leuctra and Mantineia as showing ignorance of the nature of land operations.
[3] Of Olynthos; d. 327 BCE. See kappa 240. Alexander the Great invited Callisthenes to join his expeditions to the East as his official historian, which he gladly accepted. As the king conquered new territories, Callisthenes wrote his praise, comparing him to Zeus and Achilles. But when Alexander required his subjects to prostrate themselves before him (proskynesis), Callisthenes refused; he was then accused of taking part in a conspiracy against the king, and was executed (in 327) as a traitor.
[4] For Timoleon of Corinth, the hero of Timaeus' account of Sicily in the 340s and 330s, see epsilon 95 (and mu 812), and generally OCD(4) s.v.
[5] As Adler notes, there is doubt as whether this addendum concerns Timaeus; perhaps, instead, Timagenes (tau 588) or Timochares.
