A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

be succeeded by solemn, awestruck silence. It may be no great feat to check an outbreak of disorder about a troupe of dancers or a team of horses : the mere sight of a man puts that sort of mob to the blush ; they pull themselves up and very easily see reason. Bread riots are no such easy matter : it will task the controlling and soothing powers of eloquence to turn the hearts and arrest the rage of a city which feels the pinch of starvation. But Apollonius was able by his silence to cope with people in this temper. The occasion was as follows : he came to Aspendus in Pamphylia : vetches commanded a price, the people were subsisting on bare siege-rations, because the ruling class had all the supply of grain under lock and key for profitable export. The whole youth of the place was in revolt against the Governor ; they were ready to burn him alive, although he clung for sanctuary to the imperial images. Gaining access to the Governor, Apollonius asked him by gestures what was the matter. The Governor declared himself innocent of any wrong ; he was a victim like the rest, and, unless he could get a hearing, he must perish like the rest. Upon this, Apollonius turned to the crowd and made signs to them to listen : and they were not only reduced to immediate silence by his personal authority, but even deposited their firebrands upon the altars in the place. The Governor now plucked up courage and said, ` Such and such persons (he named several) are to blame for the present famine. They have monopolized the corn, and are keeping it in one place or another in the country.' These words caused a general outcry among the Aspendians, 'To the country ! to the country !' But Apollonius by signs induced them to do no such thing, but to summon the offenders instead and obtain corn by peaceable means. When they appeared, he was within an ace of breaking out in reproaches against them : so deeply was he touched by the tears of the multitude. There was a conflux of women and children, and the old people were moaning and resigning themselves to instant death by starvation. However, he respected his resolution of silence, and wrote
