13. An EPICUREAN, was according to Diogenes Laertius (10.13) surnamed κηποτύραννος, from his exercising a kind of tyranny or supremacy in the garden or school of Epicurus. He was the teacher of Zeno of Sidon, who became his successor as the head of the school of Epicurus, about B. C. 84. He is said to have written upwards of 400 books (βιβλία, D. L. 10.25), but only one of them is mentioned by its title, viz. a Life of Epicurus. (D. L. 10.2.) This as well as his other works have completely perished.
