Translation:
of Gergis, a rhetor and historian, he lived in the time of Hadrian. He went into exile from his native city because of enmity with its rulers, and lived in Sicily. He wrote miscellaneous histories in nine books, which he entitled Muses,[1] in the Ionian dialect as well as Rhetorical declamations and certain other works.
Greek Original:
Κεφαλίων ἢ Κεφάλων, Γεργίθιος, ῥήτωρ καὶ ἱστορικός, γεγονὼς ἐπὶ Ἀδριανοῦ. ἔφυγε δὲ τὴν πατρίδα δι' ἀπέχθειαν δυναστῶν καὶ ἐβίω ἐν Σικελίᾳ. ἔγραψε παντοδαπὰς ἱστορίας ἐν βιβλίοις θ#, ἅτινα ἐπιγράφει Μούσας, Ἰάδι διαλέκτῳ: Μελέτας τε ῥητορικὰς καὶ ἄλλα τινά.
Notes:
C2 CE; RE Kaphalion(4); FGrH 93 -- but note that, at T1 there, Jacoby points out that the Suda or its source has conflated two individuals. For Kephalon of Gergis, in the Troad, see FGrH 45.
[1] cf. Herodotus (eta 536).
