4. Surnamed CORDYLIO (Κορδυλίων
), a Stoic philosopher, born at Tarsus.
He was the keeper of the library at Pergamus, and in his anxiety to preserve the doctrines of his sect in their original purity, used to cut out from the works of the Stoic writers such parts as appeared to him erroneous or inconsistent.
He removed from Pergamus to Rome, and lived with M. Cato, at whose house he died. (Strab. xiv. p.674
