a physician of Marseilles who practised at Rome in the reign of Nero, A. D. 54-68, and introduced astrology into his medical practice.
He acquired a large fortune, and is said by Pliny (Plin. Nat. 29.5
) to have left at his death to his native city the immense sum of ten million sesterces (centies H. S.
) or about 78,125l.,
after having spent nearly the same sum during his life in building the walls of the city.
