a sophist and disciple of Hierocles, converted to Christianity about the year 487. He testifies that he heard the African confessors, whose tongues Hunneric, the king of the Vandals, had caused to be cut out, speak. He wrote the Dialogue called Theophrastus, de Animarum Immortalitate et Corporis Resurrectione, which was printed at Basle, 1516; and has since appeared both in Greek and Latin, in different editions, with the version of Wolfius and the Notes of Gaspard Barthius. It is given in the Bibl. Max. Patr. 8, 649; also in Galland, 10, 627. Cave, Hist. Litt. anno 487; Landon, Eccl. Dict. s.v.
