), an intimate friend of Epicurus, is spoken of by Cicero (de Fin.
5.31) as paying a visit to Arcesilaus. The MSS. of Cicero have Carneades, but there can be little doubt that Corniades is the correct reading, since the latter is mentioned by Plutarch (non posse suaviter vivi secundum Epicur.
p. 1089) as a friend of Epicurus, and the former could not possibly have been the friend of Epicurus, as Carneades died in B. C. 129, and Epicurus in B. C. 209.
