Apollonius Molon

APOLLONIUS MOLON (sometimes called simply MoLON), a Greek rhetorician, who flourished about 70 B.C. He was a native of Alabanda, a pupil of Menecles, and settled at Rhodes. He twice visited Rome as an ambassador from Rhodes, and Cicero and Caesar took lessons from him. He endeavoured. to moderate the florid Asiatic style and cultivated an "Atticiz ing" tendency. He wrote on Homer, and, according to Josephus, violently attacked the Jews.

See C. Muller, Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum, iii.; E. Scharer, History of the Jewish People, iii. (Eng. tr. 1886).
