Ἱεροκλῆς), literary.

1. A Greek rhetorician of Alabanda in Caria, who, like his brother Menecles, was distinguished by that kind of oratory which was designated by the name of the Asiatic, in contrast with Attic oratory. His brother was the teacher of the famous Molo of Rhodes, the teacher of Cicero, so that Hierocles must have lived about B. C. 100. We do not hear that he wrote any rhetorical works, but his orations appear to have been extant in the time of Cicero. (Brut. 95, Orat. 69, de Orat. 2.23; Strab. xiv. p.661.)
