THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

POLEMON was born at the Carian Laodicea,i on the river Lycus, an inland city which is more important than the cities on the sea. His family produced, and still produces, many consuls : many cities were his passionate admirers, especially Smyrna. They had noted something great in him from the days of his youth, and they heaped all their local honours on his head, voting to him and his family their coveted civic distinctions. Thus, they made him and his descendants presidents of Hadrian's Olympic games and gave them a place on the Sacred Ship. (In February a ship under sail is brought to the market-place : it is taken from its sea moorings and is steered by the priest of Dionysus.)
Polemon's activities in Smyrna benefited the city. First, he made her seem even more populous than she was, by attracting to her the youth of the mainland and the islands-no licentious rabble, but pure Greek and the pick of Hellas. Then he introduced concord and unity into the political life of Smyrna. Previously there had been civic strife and a division between the parties of the interior and of the sea.
He was also a great asset to the city on embassies, going to the imperial court and pleading her cause. The Emperor Hadrian previously had leanings to Ephesus, but Polemon so converted him to the cause of Smyrna that on a single day he lavished on her £40,000, which was used to build the cornmarket, the most magnificent gymnasium in Asia, and the farseen temple on the headland which seems to confront the Cape of Mimas. His public rebukes to the errors of Smyrna and his frequent wise advice helped the city ; and he banished from her all arrogance and wantonness-an achievement the more remarkable, as it is not like Ionians to reform. Among his services too was his refusal to allow local litigation to be carried elsewhere. He settled it at home. I refer to suits for money ; as for cases against adulterers, murderers, and sacrilegious persons, which breed a curse if neglected, he urged not only
