He was generally criticized, because he was attended on his travels by many baggage animals, many horses, many servants, many breeds of hounds for various forms of the chase, while he rode in a Phrygian or Celtic two-horse carriage with silver bridles. But this brought distinction to Smyrna. For the splendour of a city resides not only in its public places and in the magnificence of its architecture, but also in its prosperous families.

He received the following honours from the imperial house. The Emperor Traj an allowed him to travel tax free by sea and land. Hadrian extended the privilege to his descendants, enrolled him in the Museum Circle I with the right to free meals, and, when Polemon was being sued in Rome for 10,000 paid the money for him, though the emperor had never promised the gift, nor the sophist said that he needed it.

This may be described as a pardon ; but no doubt he could not have obtained pardon in this instance, but for the eminence of his other good qualities. The emperor dedicated, as a great victory of time, the temple of Olympian Zeus, completed after 560 years, and ordered Polemon to make a speech at the religious service. He, as his habit was, fixed his eyes on the thoughts already rising in his mind, threw himself into the speech, and from the base of the temple made
