THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

and he stored his riches in the hearts of those with whom he shared them. He used to say that a man who used his money well should give to those in need, to redeem them from need, and to those not in need, to protect them from it. To sterile riches, fettered by parsimony, he gave the name of ` dead wealth ', and described the strong rooms in which some store their riches as ` wealth's prisons '.
There was a splendid magnificence about him. He was governor of the free cities of Asia, and finding the people of the Troad ill supplied with baths, and obliged to draw muddy water from wells, and to dig reservoirs to catch the rain, he urged the Emperor Hadrian not to allow an ancient city and fine seaport to perish of drought, but to give him £10,000 for a water-supply, saying that he had presented a far larger sum to mere villages. The emperor approved of the suggestion as consonant with his own character, and gave Herodes charge of the undertaking. The cost reached £280,000, and the imperial officials in Asia wrote to the emperor, saying that it was monstrous that the taxes of 500 cities should be spent on a fountain for one. The emperor found fault with Herodes, who replied in the most lordly style: ` Prince, do not be annoyed at a small matter : I will make a present to my son of any expense beyond the £120,000, and he will give it to Troy.' Similarly, the will in which he left each Athenian citizen £4 per annum betrays his lordliness. He exhibited it in other ways, often sacrificing zoo oxen in a single day, and giving a dinner after the sacrifice to the Athenian people by their tribes and families, and, on the occasion of the festival of Dionysus, providing wine for citizens and strangers alike.
As I have mentioned his will I must record the cause of his quarrel with the Athenians. The provisions of the will were as stated : and he executed it on the advice of his freedmen, who knew the harshness of his attitude to themselves and to his slaves, and tried to create a claim on the gratitude of the Athenians by being responsible for the gift.
