1. A native of Alexandria, who flourished at the close of the third century B. C. (Clinton, Fasti Hellen. vol. iii. p. 526.) Nothing is known of his personal history.


He is chiefly remarkable as the author of a work, entitled Διαδοχαί, on the successive teachers in the different philosophical schools. It is quoted very frequently by Diogenes Laertius (2.12, 26. 5.86, &c.), and Athenaeus (iv. p. 162e., &c.) It consisted of at least 23 books (Diog. Laert. prooem. 1. 7). He was also, apparently, the author of a work, περὶ τῶν Τίμωνος σιλλων (Athen. 8.336d.), and of a work entitled Διόκλειοι ἔλεφχοι (D. L. 10.4).
