1. According to him the first was the son of Verus, and lived in the time of Nero.
He practised rhetoric at Athens.
In addition to several rhetorical works, he wrote forty-three tragedies and thirteen comedies, besides treatises entitled Γυμναστικόν, Νέρωνα, Θεατήν
(which Meursius thinks should be written Νέρωνα θεατήν
), περὶ τραγωδίας, λιθογνωμικόν, Πρωτέα.
We shall reserve further notice of him till we come to speak of the third Philostratus.
