Translated headword: Herodes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Surnamed Julius, son of Atticus the son of Plutarch,[1] a member of the Aeacid family; an Athenian, of the deme Marathon. Sophist. He was extremely wealthy, so much so that he built a stadium and a roofed theatre for the Athenians. His father was governor of Asia, and was included among those who held the consulship twice. He lived under the emperors Trajan, Hadrian and Marcus Antoninus, and was taught by Favorinus[2] and Polemo.[3] He wrote Ephemerides, an extremely learned composition, and letters and improvisatory speeches; Philostratus mentions them in the Lives of the Sophists. Hadrian[4] the sophist succeeded him as head of his school. Herodes was a contemporary of the sophist Aristides.[5] Very many other works by him are preserved, in which the greatness and elevation of his spirit can be observed and are displayed throughout. He died of consumption aged about 76.
Greek Original:
Ἡρώδης, Ἰούλιος χρηματίσας, υἱὸς Ἀττικοῦ τοῦ Πλουτάρχου, γένος Αἰακίδης, Ἀθηναῖος, τῶν δήμων Μαραθώνιος, σοφιστής, πλούσιος ἐκ θησαυροῦ γενόμενος σφόδρα, ὥστε καὶ στάδιον κατεσκευάσατο Ἀθηναίοις καὶ θέατρον ὑπωρόφιον. ἦρξε τῆς Ἀσίας ὁ αὐτοῦ πατὴρ καὶ τοῖς δισυπάτοις συγκατελέχθη. ἦν δὲ ἐπί τε Τραϊανοῦ καὶ Ἀδριανοῦ καὶ Μάρκου Ἀντωνίνου τῶν αὐτοκρατόρων, διδαχθεὶς ὑπὸ Φαβωρίνῳ καὶ Πολέμωνι. καὶ ἔγραψεν Ἐφημερίδας, σύγγραμμα πολυμαθές, καὶ ἐπιστολάς, καὶ λόγους αὐτοσχεδίους: ὧν μέμνηται Φιλόστρατος ἐν τοῖς βίοις τῶν σοφιστῶν. διεδέξατο δὲ αὐτοῦ τὴν σχολὴν Ἀδριανὸς ὁ σοφιστής. σύγχρονος δὲ ἦν Ἡρώδης Ἀριστείδῃ τῷ σοφιστῇ. φέρονται δὲ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄλλα πλεῖστα, ἐν οἷς τὸ μεγαλοφυὲς καὶ ὑψίνουν τοῦδε τοῦ ἀνδρὸς κατανοεῖται καὶ διαδείκνυται. τελευτᾷ δὲ ἀμφὶ τὰ ἓξ καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα ἔτη ξυντακὴς γενόμενος.
