Headword: Ἰσίδωρος
Adler number: iota,631
Translated headword: Isidore, Isidoros
Vetting Status: high
Philosopher; he learned philosophy under his brothers, being exceptionally attentive in his studies and in religion; he was competent in the extreme, so to speak, in arranging everything for religious cult. As it seems to me, in his life-style he was a philosopher, but in understanding he was not well approved, being unpracticed rather than untalented in dialectic. When he was young something remarkable happened. His sister's son, an age-mate of his, who was 18 years old, having demonstrated already in youth a miraculous natural force, fell from the roof and died instantly. When great mourning for him ensued, he came in a dream and consoled Isidore for this.
Greek Original:
Ἰσίδωρος, φιλόσοφος: ὃς ἐφιλοσόφησε μὲν ὑπὸ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς, εἴπερ τις ἄλλος ἐν τοῖς μαθήμασιν ἐπιμελής τε ἐν ἱεροῖς καὶ τὰ πρὸς ταῦτα κατασκευάζειν ἅπαντα, ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν, ἱκανώτατος εἰς ὑπερβολήν. ἐμοί τε δοκεῖν τὴν ζωὴν μὲν ἦν φιλόσοφος, τὰ δὲ πρὸς ἐπιστήμην οὐ διεξητασμένος, ἀγύμναστος ὢν μᾶλλον ἢ ἀφυὴς τὰ διαλεκτικά. νέῳ δὲ ὄντι θαυμαστόν τι συμβέβηκεν. ἀδελφῆς γὰρ υἱὸς αὐτῷ καὶ ἡλικιώτης, ἔτη ιη# γεγονώς, ἐπιδειξάμενος εὐθὺς ἐκ νέων φύσεώς τινα ῥώμην δαιμονίαν, ἀπὸ τοῦ τέγους πεσὼν ἐτελεύτα παραχρῆμα τὸν βίον: καὶ πένθους ἐπ' αὐτῷ μεγάλου συνεστῶτος, ἐπιφοιτῶν ἐνύπνιος τῷ Ἰσιδώρῳ τοῦτον παρεμυθεῖτο.
