Nigrinus

(156 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[German version] (Νιγρῖνος/ Nigrînos). Middle Platonist philosopher of the 2nd cent. AD, known only from a text of the same name by Lucianus [1], who depicted him as a teacher working in Rome. He attributed to him a lecture full of anecdotes about the exemplary, peaceful life of the Athenians in contrast to the dissipated, noisy hustle and bustle of life in Rome; certainly this lecture tends to be more akin to the thought of the Cynics than the Platonists. It is disputed whether N.'s existence is l…

Manaechmus

(104 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[German version] Platonic philosopher from Alopeconnesus or Proconnesus, known only from a note from the Suda (2,317,22ff. = [1. 44; 2. 118, fr. 2]). He wrote, in addition to other philosophical works, three books on Plato's ‘Republic. Identification with the mathematician Menaechmus [2. 546f.] can be excluded [1. 203], and it is doubtful that he is identical to Manaechmus named by Photius (Bibl. cod. 167 p. 114b 8) [3. 699f.].

Dercylides

(180 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[German version] (Δερκυλίδης; Derkylídēs) Philosopher from the 1st cent. BC [3. 180] or AD [4. 64]. Although nowhere described as a Platonist, he seems to have studied Plato's philosophy intensively, especially the mathematical and astronomical sections of his dialogues. Significant was his work of at least eleven volumes ‘On Plato's philosophy’, which was still being quoted by Porphyrius [1. 82ff., 296; 3. 60, 236]. The treatise ‘On the spindle and the whorl, treated in Plato's Politeia’, is perhaps part of that work [3. 44, 202f., 236]. Proclus transmits two comm…

Gaius

(153 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[German version] [I] (Γάϊος; Gáïos). Platonic philosopher of the early 2nd cent. AD. The physician  Galen studied with two of his students [3. 34f.]. No works are extant. His commentary on the myth of  Er [1. 18, 205] and his comments on Plato's dual teaching methods [1. 213; 2.98, 357ff.] were most likely part of (lost) lecture notes taken by his student  Albinus [1. 28, 182ff.]. He was held in high regard particularly by Plotinus, Porphyrius, and Priscian; Proclus saw him as one of the great autho…

Derkylides

(185 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[English version] Philosoph des 1. Jh.v.Chr. [3. 180] oder n.Chr. [4. 64]. Obgleich an keiner Stelle als Platoniker bezeichnet, scheint er sich doch intensiv mit der Philos. Platons, bes. mit den mathematischen und astronomischen Stellen seiner Dialoge, beschäftigt zu haben. Bedeutend war sein mindestens elfbändiges Werk ‘Über die Philos. Platons, aus dem noch Porphyrios zitierte [1. 82ff., 296; 3. 60, 236]. Der Traktat ‘Über die Spindel und die Wirteln, von denen in Platons Politeia die Rede ist, ist vielleicht ein Teil dieses Werkes [3. 44, 202f., 236]. Proklos…

Gaios

(141 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[English version] (Γάϊος). Platonischer Philosoph Anf. des 2. Jh. n.Chr. Der Arzt Galenos studierte bei zweien seiner Schüler [3. 34f.]. Schriften des G. sind nicht überliefert. Seine Kommentierung des Er-Mythos [1. 18, 205] und seine Äußerung über die doppelte Lehrweise Platons [1. 213; 2.98, 357ff.] waren wohl Bestandteile der Vorlesungsnachschriften seines Schülers Albinos (verloren) [1. 28, 182ff.]. Hohes Ansehen genoß er vor allem bei Plotinos, Porphyrios und Priskianos; Proklos rechnet ihn z…

Nigrinos

(137 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[English version] (Νιγρῖνος). Mittelplatonischer Philosoph des 2. Jh.n.Chr., bekannt lediglich aus der gleichnamigen Schrift des Lukianos [1], der ihn als einen in Rom wirkenden Lehrer darstellt. Er legt ihm einen anekdotenreichen Vortrag über das vorbildliche, ruhige Leben der Athener im Gegensatz zu dem ausschweifenden, lauten Treiben in Rom in den Mund, der allerdings eher kynisches als platonisches Gedankengut enthält. Ob die Gestalt des N. eine lit. Fiktion ist oder ob sich hinter dem Namen e…

Manaichmos

(90 words)

Author(s): Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
[English version] aus Alopekonnesos oder Prokonnesos, platonischer Philosoph, bekannt lediglich aus einer Notiz der Suda (2,317,22ff. = [1. 44; 2. 118, fr. 2]). Er schrieb neben anderen philos. Werken auch drei B. zu Platons ‘Staat. Eine Identifizierung mit dem Mathematiker Menaichmos [2. 546f.] ist auszuschließen [1. 203], eine Gleichsetzung mit dem von Photios (Bibl. cod. 167 p. 114b 8) genannten Menaichmos fraglich [3. 699f.].

Eudorus

Author(s): Bloch, René (Berne) | Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster)
(Εὔδωρος; Eúdōros). [German version] [1] One of the five leaders of the Myrmidons under Achilles One of the five leaders of the  Myrmidons under Achilles. A son of Hermes and  Polymele, he was brought up by his grandfather Phylas after Polymele later married the Actorid Echecles. His aptitude for fighting, being a fast runner, is strongly emphasized (Hom. Il. 16,179-186) but apart from this, the Iliad is silent on his fate. Eust. Od. 1697,56 reports of his death at the hands of Pyraechmes at the first clash with the Trojans (cf. also Eust. Od. 1053,54). Bloch, René (Berne) Bibliography R. Jan…

(Ὠριγένης/ Ōrigénēs). [German version] [1] Platonic philosopher, 3rd cent. AD Platonic philosopher of the 3rd cent. AD, not to be confused with the homonymous Christian O. [2] [1. 17ff.; 2. 404ff.]. Along with Erennius and Plotinus, he was a pupil of Ammonius [9] Saccas. O. wrote two works: On Demons and The one creator is the king (Ὅτι μόνος ποιητὴς ὁ βασιλεύς, fr. 1 and 2 Weber) [3. 92, 336f.]. Proclus conserves numerous comments of O. on the style and content of the proem of Plato's Timaeus (fr. 8-16 Weber). Since O. did not write a commentary on that dialogue, these remark…

From Athens, served as a hoplite in the armed forces on Samos in 411 BC and was significantly involved there in the overthrow of an oligarchic revolution (Thuc. 8,73). Together with Thrasybulus [3], he organized the resistance against the oligarchs in Athens ( tetrakósioi [2]) and, through an oath, obliged the Athenian forces and the Samians to defend their democracy and continue the war (Thuc. 8,75,2). After being elected stratēgoí (Thuc…

Sohn von Hermes und Polymele, er wird - als diese später den Aktoriden Echekles heiratet - von seinem Großvater Phylas erzogen. Seine Eignung zum Kampf als schneller Läufer wird zwar stark betont (Hom. Il. 16,179-186), von seinem weiteren Schicksal aber schweigt die Ilias. Eust. Od. 1697,56 berichtet von seinem Tod durch Pyraichmes beim ersten Zusammenstoß mit den Troern (vgl. auch Eust. Od. 1053,54). Bloch, René (Princeton) Bibliography R…

Democritus

(1,541 words)

Author(s): Bodnár, István (Budapest) | Baltes, Matthias (Münster) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster) | Degani, Enzo (Bologna)
(Δημόκριτος; Dēmókritos). [1] of Abdera Atomist philosopher, 2nd half of the 5th cent. BC [German version] A. Life and Writing D. was active in the 2nd half of the 5th cent. and one of the main representatives of ancient  Atomism, which he adopted from  Leucippus. Their respective contributions to the theory of the atom are difficult to differentiate. It is characteristic in this context that the ‘Great World Order’ (Μέγας διάκοσμος; Mégas diákosmos) listed in an index of D.'s writings (by Diog. Laert. 9,45 = 68A33 DK) was a treatise by Leucippus according to Theoph…

AD, pupil of  Atticus, called ‘top Platonist’ (Πλατωνικῶν κορυφαῖος; Platōnikôn koryphaîos) by Proclus [1. 18]. Important was his commentary on Plato (24 bks.) [1. 28, 152, 180ff., 191, 194, 197, 206, 216f.] and his lexicon on Plato (2 bks.) [1. 28, 235]. Just as Atticus and Plutarch, H. supported the idea of the world's origin in a single (temporal) act, but, in his understanding of the  Demiour…

[German version] [1] Greek military author Greek military author, wrote the τακτικὰ Αἰλιανοῦ; Taktikà Ailianoû, a textbook addressed to Trajan, in which the tactics and structure of the Greek and specifically the Macedonian armies of the classical and Hellenistic eras are explained. A. was a theoretician without any practical experience and it is for this reason that his work appears mechanical. By his own admission (1,2), he drew on the work of many older authors (Aeneas Tacticus, Pyrrhus of Epirus, Posidoni…
