THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

He was fifty-six when he died, a limit which for the other branches of knowledge marks the beginning of old age, but for a sophist is still youth, since in this profession age seasons skill.
He has no grave in Smyrna, though several are attributed to him. Some say that he was buried in the garden of the temple of Virtue, others that his grave is not far off, close to the sea. There is a small shrine there and a statue of Polemon in it, wearing the dress in which he conducted the service on the trireme, and he is said to be buried below. Others say that he lies in the court of his house under the bronze statues. But all these reports are false, for if he had died in Smyrna, there are none of the wonderful temples in that town in which he would have been thought unworthy to rest. The truer account is that he lies in Laodicea near the Syrian Gates, where the graves of his ancestors are, and that he was buried while yet alive. For he gave instructions to this effect to his closest friends, and as he lay in the tomb urged those who were closing it: ` Quick, quick. Let not the sun see me silent.' To his friends who were lamenting over him he cried, ` Give me a body and I will declaim'.

We pass to the great rival of Polemon, whom we have already met. More restrained in style, in behaviour he was
more extravagant. A multi-millionaire with the soul of an artist, at least he used his wealth well. After mentioning that
Hhe belonged to a historic Greek family Philostratus proceeds with a catalogue of his public gifts. E used his wealth supremely well. We must not suppose that this is easy: it is extremely difficult and hard, for men who are intoxicated with riches open the floodgates of their arrogance on mankind. Wealth is called blind ; but with Herodes it recovered its sight. He had his eyes on his friends, on cities, on nations ; his vision embraced the world,
