*Ai)sa/ra), of Lucania, a female Pythagorean philosopher, said to be a daughter of Pythagoras, wrote a work "about Human Nature," of which a fragment is preserved by Stobaeus. (Ecl. i. p. 847, ed. Heeren.) Some editors attribute this fragment to Aresas, one of the successors of Pythagoras, but Bentley prefers reading Aesara. She is also mentioned in the life of Pythagoras (apud . Phot. Cod. 249, p. 438b. ed. Bekker), where Bentley reads Αἰσάρα instead of Σάρα. (Dissertation upon Plalaris, p. 277.)
