30. Of THEANGELA (ὁ Θεαγγελεύς
), a writer cited by Athenaeus, (vi. p. 271b) and by Strabo (xiv. p.662
). Theangela, from which Philip received his designation, apparently as being a native of it, was a city on the most eastern promontory of Caria, not far from Halicarnassus. Of the age of Philip nothing is known, except that he was earlier than Strabo; but if there is any reason for identifying him with Philip Isangelus (ὁ Εἰσαγγελεύς
), mentioned by Plutarch (No. 14), he must be placed after the time of Alexander the Great.
History of Caria
He wrote a history of Caria, the title or description of which is thus given by Athenaeus (l.c.
), Περὶ Καρῶν καὶ Λελέγων σύγγραμμα ;
and by Strabo more briefly, Καρικά
