1. A Greek historian, who probably lived at the time of the first Ptolemies, or at least after the time of Demosthenes, for we learn from Plutarch (Plut. Dem. 5
), that Hennippus of Smyrna referred to him as his authority for some statement respecting Demosthenes.
According to Apollodorus (apud Phlegon. de Longaev.
2), Ctesibius died during a walk at the age of 104, and according to Lucian (Macrob. 22), at the age of 124 years. Whether he was the author of a work, Περὶ Φιλοσοφίας
, referred to by Plutarch (Vit. X Orat.
p. 844c.) is uncertain.
