2. Of Nysa, a Stoic philosopher, son of Menecrates, and, on the mother's side, grandson of Posidonius, of whom also he was the disciple and successor.
He therefore flourished after the middle of the first century B. C. (Clinton, Fasti,
vol. iii. s. a. 51, B. C.) Suidas (s. v.
) mentions his works Βίοι ἐνδόξων
and Φιλοσόφων διαδοχαί
, and adds that some ascribed to him a Βίος Ἑλλάδος
, in four books, which, however, as well as the work Περὶ Ῥόδου
, should perhaps be assigned to Jason of Argos.
