3. A later Neo-Platonic philosopher of Apameia, who was a contemporary of the emperor Julian and Libanius. He has often been confounded with the other [No. 2], but the time at which he lived, and his intimacy with Julian, clearly show that he belongs to a later date. The emperor, where he speaks of him, bestows extravagant praise upon him. (Libanius, Epist. p. 509, ed. Wolf; Julian, Epist. 34, 40; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. v. p. 761. There was an Iamblichus, a physician at Constantinople, mentioned in an epigram of Leontius, in the Greek Anthology.
