(fl. mid-2nd c. ad)
Platonist or possibly Pythagorean from Syria. Only fragments of his writings remain, but he appears to have been a radical dualist, interested in connecting Plato to the ancient wisdom of the Brahmins, Magi, and Jews; hence his description of Plato as ‘Moses speaking Attic’. He was a considerable influence on Plotinus and Neoplatonism.
