At a later period, the critics, to whom
we owe this classification, added a third style, the
Rhodian, which they asserted to he midway between
the two and to be a blend of both, since the orators
of this school are neither so concise as the Attic nor
redundant like the Asiatic school, but appear to
derive their style in part from their national characteristics, in part from those of their founder.
