THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

idea being that she rules everything. Herodes introduced the present costume of the Athenian youth, by dressing them in white cloaks. Previously they had worn black at public meetings and in processions.
Herodes also presented Athens with the theatre in memory of his wife Regilla, roofed with cedar, a wood which is considered costly even for statues. These two buildings at Athens-they are unique in the Roman Empire-are memorable, as is the roofed theatre which he built at Corinth. It is far inferior to his Athenian theatre, but ranks high among the famous buildings of the world. Memorable too are his statues at the Isthmus of Corinth and the gifts with which he filled the shrine, not forgetting the dolphin of Melicertes. He dedicated the stadium at Delphi to the god, and the water-supply at Olympia to Zeus, and presented the Thessalians and the Greeks of the Malian Gulf with the curative baths for invalids at Thermopylae. He resettled the decayed towns of Oricum in Epirus and of Canusium in Italy, making the latter the civilizing present of a watersupply, of which it was in great need ; and he did various services to the towns of Euboea, Boeotia, and the Peloponnese. Yet with all these great achievements he regarded himself as having effected little because he failed to cut the Isthmus of Corinth. He thought that it would be a brilliant thing to sever a mainland, join two seas, and reduce the long sea voyage to a passage of some three miles. He longed to do it, but had not the courage to make a request to the emperor, for fear that he might be criticized for attempting a design which even Nero had not been able to carry out. But he betrayed his ambition in the following remark. He was once driving along the Corinth road with Ctesidemus, who told me the story. They came to the Isthmus, when Herodes said, 'Poseidon, I wish it, but no one will give me leave.' Ctesidemus wondered at his words and asked him their cause. ` I have long been struggling', replied Herodes, ` to leave posterity evidence of a conception
