2. Of LAMPSACUS, a contemporary and friend of Anaxagoras. He wrote on Homer, the leading feature of his system of interpretation being that the deities and stories in Homer were to be understood as allegorical modes of representing physical powers and phenomena. He died B. C. 464. (Plat. Ion, 100.2. p. 530c; D. L. 2.11; Tatian. Assyr. in orat. Πρὸς Ἕλληνας, p. 160b; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. i. p. 517; Voss. de Hist. Graecis, p. 180, ed. West.)
