2. The author of a work entitled Φιλίστορες
, or the friends of history, which is referred to several times, and seems to have chiefly contained marvellous stories about men and animals. (Steph. Byz. s. vv. Βραχμᾶνες
; Tzetz. Chil.
7.146, 716, &c.)
The time at which he lived is uncertain, though he belongs, in all probability, to a later date than Hierocles of Alabanda.
