3. An accomplished flatterer at the court of Ptolemy III. (Euergetes), who, apparently mistaking servility for knowledge of the world, affected to adopt Ulysses as his model. He is said to have worn a seal-ring with a head of Ulysses engraved on it, and to have given his children the names of Telegonus and Anticleia. (Athen. 6.251d.)
