a native of Gades, a distinguished follower of the Pythagorean system, who flourished in the time of the emperor Nero. He wrote a work on the dogmas of his sect. He was a man of considerable eloquence, and was to some extent imitated by Iamblichus. (Porphyr. p. 32; Suidas, s. v. Γάδειρα.) A fragment of his is preserved in Stobaeus (*)Eclog. p. 3).
