RE Apsines, with Suppl. 14.53; NP Apsines; OCD4 Apsines; PIR2 A978. For the rhetorical treatise traditionally attributed to Apsines see Dilts and Kennedy (1997), including text and translation. Heath (1998) argues that the attribution is incorrect; if so, it is possible that Apsines was the author of the pseudo-Hermogenean On Invention.
[1] In present-day Jordan.
[2] [eta 462] Heraclides.
[3] [beta 159] Basilicus.
[4] The transmitted text says Maximian (286-310); but Maximinus (235-238) must be meant, since other entries make Apsines a contemporary of the sophists Fronto [phi 735], with a floruit under Severus Alexander (222-235), and Maior [mu 46], with a floruit under Philip (244-249), and give his pupil Gaianus (gamma 9) a floruit under Gordian (238-244).
