Hermodo'rus

2. A disciple of Plato, is said to have circulated the works of Plato, and to have sold them in Sicily, whence arose the proverb λόγοισιν Ἑρμόδωρος ἐμπορεύεται. (Suid. s. v. λόγοισι; Cic. Att. 13.20.) Hermodorus himself appears to have been a philosopher, for we know the titles of two works that were attributed to him, viz. Περὶ πλάτωνος and Περὶ μαθημάτων. (Comp. Diog. Laert. Prooem. 8, 2.106, 3.6; Ionsius, de Script. Hist. Philos. 1.10. 2.)
