(Νικόστρατος). [English version] [1] Sohn des Menelaos [1] und der Helene Sohn des Menelaos [1] und der Helene [1]. Nach Hom. Il. 3,175 und Hom. Od. 4,12 hatten Menelaos und Helene nur eine Tochter (Hermione, vgl. Eur. Andr. 898; Lykophr. 851), doch gab es auch eine Trad., die zusätzlich einen Sohn kannte (Hes. fr. 175,2 M.-W.; Soph. El. 539). Spätere Autoren versuchen, die Differenz zu vermitteln, indem sie N. zum Sohn einer Sklavin erklären (Paus. 2,18,6). In Amyklai waren N. und Megapenthes [2] als Gege…

Galenos (De compositione medicamentum secundum genera 13,295 K.) hält im Rückgriff auf Andromachos [5] d.J. ein Mittel gegen Durchfall von Lucius aus Tarsos fest, einer Stadt mit langer Trad. auf dem Gebiet der Pharmakologie (vgl. auch 13,292 K., wo der Name der Stadt nicht gen. wird). Mit diesem Lucius ist höchstwahrscheinlich der berühmtere L. Kathe…

(Balas); herrschte an dessen Stelle in Syrien, ließ Verwandte und Anhänger des (toten) Demetrios I. umbringen und unterdrückte die Antiochener. Als er einen Anschlag auf Alexandros' wohl wichtigsten Förderer, Ptolemaios VI., versucht hatte und dieser seine Auslieferung forderte, Alexandros sie jedoch verweigerte, brach Ptolemaios mit Alexandros: Trotz seiner Verkleidung als Frau wurde A.…

(Ἁρποκρατίων). [English version] [1] platon. Philosoph aus Argos, 2. Jh. Platonischer Philosoph aus Argos, 2. Jh. n.Chr., Schüler des Attikos, von Proklos ‘Spitzenplatoniker’ (Πλατωνικῶν κορυφαῖος) genannt [1. 18]. Bedeutend waren sein Komm. zu Platon (24 B.) [1. 28, 152, 180ff., 191, 194, 197, 206, 216f.], und sein Platon-Lex. (2 B.) [1. 28, 235]. H. vertrat wie Attikos und Plutarch ein Entstehen der Welt in einem einmaligen (zeitlichen) Akt, lehnte sich aber in seiner Auffassung vom Demiurgos [3] und de…

Nigrinos

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…

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…

[English version] [1] griech. Militärschriftsteller Griech. Militärschriftsteller, verfaßte die τακτικά Αἰλιανοῦ, ein an Traian adressiertes Lehrbuch, in dem Taktik und Aufbau der griech. und bes. maked. Heere der klass. und hell. Zeit erklärt werden. A. war ein Theoretiker ohne praktische Erfahrung, sein Werk wirkt daher schematisch. Er zog laut eigener Aussage (1,2) viele ältere Autoren (Aineias Taktikos, Pyrrhos von Epirus, Poseidonios) zu Rate, hauptsächlich offenbar Polybios. Seine Schrift wurde…

(Νικόστρατος; Nikóstratos). [German version] [1] Son of Menelaus [1] and Helen Son of Menelaus [1] and Helen [1]. According to  Hom. Il. 3,175 and Hom. Od. 4,12, Menelaus and Helen had only a daughter (Hermione, cf. Eur. Andr. 898; Lycoph. 851), but in another tradition they also had a son (Hes. Fr. 175,2 M.-W.; Soph. El. 539). Later authors tried to resolve this discrepancy by making N. the son of a slave (Paus. 2,18,6). In Amyclae, N. and Megapenthes [2] were portrayed on horseback, as a counterpart to t…

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…

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…

(Πτολεμαῖος/ Ptolemaîos). Personal name meaning 'warlike' (not 'hostile'), first recorded in Hom. Il. 4,228; the name occurred in Macedonia in the 5th and 4th cents. BC, from where it spread to Thessaly, still in the 4th cent. (IG IX 2, 598). It became prominent with the Lagid dynasty, and became common, not only in Egypt, where it may at first have indicated solidarity with the dynasty, but also elsewhere. It underwent many deformations and transmutations. Ptolemies Famous persons: P. [1] I Soter, P. [6] III Euergetes; P. [22], the son of Caesar; the scientist Claudius P. [65]. Ameling, Wa…

Galen (De compositione medicamentum secundum genera 13,295 K.), quoting from Andromachus [5] the Younger, records a remedy against diarrhoea by L. of Tarsus, a city with a long pharmacological tradition (cf. also 13,292 K., where the name of the city is not mentioned). He is almost certainly to be identified with the more fa…

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…

BC Favourite of  Alexander [II 13] I (Balas); ruled in his place in Syria, executed relatives and followers of (the deceased) Demetrius I and oppressed the Antiochenes. When he attempted an attack on Ptolemy VI, certainly Alexander's most important supporter, and Ptolemy demanded that A. be handed over, Alexander actually declined to do this, so Ptolemy broke with Alexander: despite dressing as a woman, A…

(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.].

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…

Thrasyllus

Author(s): Schmitz, Winfried (Bielefeld) | Lakmann, Marie-Luise (Münster) | Harmon, Roger (Basle)

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).

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…
