THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

a long and wonderful oration, of which the prelude was that its inspiration came not without divine help.
At his apotheosis, when handing over his power, the emperor reconciled his adopted son Antoninus to Polemon. I must now tell the story of this.
Antoninus, when governor of all Asia, stayed in Polemon's house, it being the best in Smyrna and belonging to its most eminent citizen. Polemon returned at night from absence abroad, shouted at the door that it was monstrous to keep him out of his own property, and finally compelled Antoninus to move to other quarters. This came to the emperor's knowledge. To avoid an exposure of the facts he made no inquiry into it : butconsidering what wouldhappen after his death, andreflecting that often gentle characters are exasperated by aggression and irritation, he was afraid for Polemon. So in his public will he said ` the sophist Polemon was among those who suggested this idea ', enabling him to claim thanks for his services and thus paving the way a foytiori for pardon. Indeed, Antoninus made a joke on the Smyrna incident to Polemon, indicating that he had not forgotten ; while the repeated honours, with which he exalted him, served as a pledge that he did not bear it in mind. The joke was this. When Polemon came to Rome the emperor embraced him and said 'Give Polemon lodging and let no one turn him out'. When a tragic actor at the Asiatic festival of Olympian Zeus, where Polemon presided, said that he should prosecute the sophist, because he had driven him off the stage at the commencement of the play, the emperor asked the actor at what hour he was expelled. The man replied that it was midday. To which the emperor very wittily rejoined :` He drove me out of his house at midnight, yet I did not prosecute him.'
This may serve me to illustrate the gentleness of an emperor
