8. ELIAS, called "the PHILOSOPHER."
There are in the Medicean Library at Florence Prolegomena to the Εἰσαγωγὴ
of Porphyry taken from the writings of " Elias the Philosopher," and there are some extracts from the same Elias in a MS. in the Library of St. Mark at Venice.
But nothing appears to be known of the writer beyond his name.
