These are the Athenian eponymoi who belong to the ancients. And of later date than these they have tribes named after the following, Attalus1
the Mysian and Ptolemy the Egyptian,2
and within my own time the emperor Hadrian3
, who was extremely religious in the respect he paid to the deity and contributed very much to the happiness of his various subjects. He never voluntarily entered upon a war, but he reduced the Hebrews beyond Syria, who had rebelled.4
As for the sanctuaries of the gods that in some cases he built from the beginning, in others adorned with offerings and furniture, and the bounties he gave to Greek cities, and sometimes even to foreigners who asked him, all these acts are inscribed in his honor in the sanctuary at Athens
common to all the gods.
