Headword: Γρηγόριος
Adler number: gamma,453
Translated headword: Gregorios, Gregorius, Gregory
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Brother of Hermeias the philosopher. He was completely the opposite of Hermeias: intelligent in the extreme, and quick in his inquiries and his lessons; but otherwise he was not a peaceful soul nor did he have any serenity in his habits, rather he was somewhat disturbed. When they came from Athens to Alexandria, Gregorios afterwards fell ill quite seriously so that his mind became unwieldy [for reasoning] and generally defective. So says Damaskios in the Philosophical History.
Greek Original:
Γρηγόριος, ἀδελφὸς Ἑρμείου τοῦ φιλοσόφου: ὃς ἅπαν τοὐναντίον ἦν τῷ Ἑρμείᾳ, ὀξύτατος μὲν εἰς ὑπερβολὴν καὶ εὐκίνητος ἐπί τε τὰς ζητήσεις καὶ τὰς μαθήσεις, ἄλλως δὲ οὐχ ἡσύχιος οὐδὲ γαλήνην ἐν τοῖς ἤθεσι φέρων τινά, ἀλλά τι καὶ παρακεκινηκός. ἐπεὶ δὲ Ἀθήνηθεν ἧκον εἰς Ἀλεξάνδρειαν, ὕστερον ὁ Γρηγόριος ἑάλω τῇ νόσῳ ἐπὶ τὸ πλέον, ὥστε δύσχρηστον αὐτοῦ καὶ πολλαχῆ παραλλάττον γενέσθαι τὸ ὄργανον. οὕτω φησὶ Δαμάσκιος εἰς τὴν φιλόσοφον ἱστορίαν.
