Sophist.[1] An Isaurian by birth;[2] he was highly reputed among the mass of fellow-professionals in Alexandria. He not only allowed Proclus[3] to share in his discourses, but thought it right to have him share his house and admitted him to share meals with his wife and children, as if he was himself his legitimate son. He also introduced him to those who held the reins of Egypt.
Greek Original:
Λεωνᾶς, σοφιστής, Ἴσαυρος τὸ γένος, εὐδοκιμῶν ἐν τῷ πλήθει τῶν ἐν Ἀλεξανδρείᾳ ὁμοτέχνων: ὃς Πρόκλῳ οὐ μόνον τῶν ἑαυτοῦ λόγων ἐκοινώνησεν, ἀλλὰ καὶ σύνοικον ἔχειν ἠξίου καὶ συνδιαιτᾶσθαι γυναικὶ καὶ τέκνοις παρεσκεύασεν, οἷα παῖδα γνήσιον καὶ τοῦτον γενόμενον. γνώριμον δὲ αὐτὸν ἐποίει καὶ τοῖς τὰς ἡνίας ἔχουσι τῆς Αἰγύπτου.
