30. Of THEANGELA ( Θεαγγελεύς), a writer cited by Athenaeus, (vi. p. 271b) and by Strabo (xiv. p.662). Theangela, from which Philip received his designation, apparently as being a native of it, was a city on the most eastern promontory of Caria, not far from Halicarnassus. Of the age of Philip nothing is known, except that he was earlier than Strabo; but if there is any reason for identifying him with Philip Isangelus ( Εἰσαγγελεύς), mentioned by Plutarch (No. 14), he must be placed after the time of Alexander the Great.


History of Caria

He wrote a history of Caria, the title or description of which is thus given by Athenaeus (l.c.), Περὶ Καρῶν καὶ Λελέγων σύγγραμμα ; and by Strabo more briefly, Καρικά. The work is lost.
