2. Another Greek physician, who must have lived in the first or second century after Christ, as he is said by Galen (de Caus. Puls. 3.9, vol. ix. pp. 138, 139) to have differed from Archigenes respecting the state of the pulse during sleep. No other particulars are known of his history; but he is sometimes confounded with Apollonius of Cyprus, a mistake which has arisen from reading Ἀπολλωνίδον instead of Ἀπολλωνίδον in the passage of Galen where the latter physician is mentioned. [APOLLONIUS CYPRIUS.] He may perhaps be the same person who is mentioned by Artemidorus (Oneirocr. 4.2), and Aetius (tetrab. ii. serm. 4.100.48. p. 403), in which last passage the name is spelled Apolloniades. (Fabricius, Bibl. Gr. vol. xiii. p. 74, ed. vet.)
