4. An Assyrian, who lived at Nineveh, where he became acquainted with Apollonius Tyanaeus [see p. 242b.], whom he accompanied in his travels. Of these he wrote an account, in which he included also the discourses and prophecies of his master.
This work seems to have been the basis of the life of Apollonius by Philostratus.
The style of it shewed traces of the author's country and of his education among barbarians. (Suid. s. v. Δάμις
