Cyrus

3. A physician, probably of Lampsacus, son of Apollonius, who obtained the dignity of Archiater. He is mentioned in a Greek inscription found at Lampsacus, as having, besides many other acts of liberality, presented to the senate one thousand Attic drachmae, i. e. (reckoning the drachma to be worth nine pence three farthings) forty pounds, twelve shillings, and six pence. (Spon, Miscellan. Erudit. Antiquit. p. 142, quoted by Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. xiii. p. 134, ed. vet.)
