1. A Greek sophist and rhetorician about whose life nothing is known. Suidas (s. v. Ἄβας
: compare Eudocia, p. 51) ascribes to him ἱστορικὰ ἀπομνήματα
and a work on rhetoric (τέχνη ῥητορική
). What Photius (Phot. Bibl. 190
. p. 150b. ed. Bekker) quotes from him, belongs probably to the former work. (Compare Walz, Rhetor. Graec.
7.1. p. 203.)
