7. CHOLLIDEUS, or CHOLLIDENSIS (Χολιδεὺς, more correctly Χολλιδεὺς), mentioned in Plato's will, given by Diogenes Laertius (3.41), as the owner of land adjoining a farm or estate which Plato bequeathed to his son Adeimantius. Fabricius (Bibl. Graec. vol. iii. p. 181) notices this occurrence of the name of Philippus: and the compiler of the index to Fabricius has unwittingly converted the Attic landowner into a Platonic philosopher.
