THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

is how it was contrived. It was said that, when his wife Regilla was in the eighth month of her pregnancy, Herodes ordered his freedman Alcimedon to beat her for some slight fault. He struck her in the stomach ; this brought on a premature confinement and the woman died. Treating the story as true, Bradua, the brother of Regilla, a distinguished ex-consul, prosecuted him for murder. Bradua appeared before the Roman court wearing on his shoe the ivory crescent buckle I indicating his high birth, and without producing any convincing evidence for his charge, delivered a lengthy encomium on his descent ; which caused Herodes to say derisively, ` You wear your nobility on your ankles.' The accuser was boasting of a service which he had done to one Italian city, when Herodes finely said, ` I too could recount many such actions on my side, if my trial had been before the world.' Herodes' defence was assisted by the fact that he had given no such orders about Regilla, and that he sorrowed over her death. His grief was misrepresented as feigned, but truth won the day.
For he would never have dedicated his great theatre to her, or have postponed his second candidature for the consulship, if he had not been innocent of the charge. Nor would he have taken her blood-stained dress and dedicated it in the temple at Eleusis ; that would have made the goddesses more inclined to avenge than to pardon the murder. Besides, he changed the appearance of his house as a tribute to his wife's memory, replacing its gay hues with black hangings and colours, and with Lesbian marble, which is dark and sombre. In this connexion the philosopher Lucius is said to have given advice to Herodes, and when it was not accepted to have employed ridicule. He was a close friend of the sophist, and, being in his company when he was indulging in excessive grief, remonstrated with him as follows: 'In everything moderation is the
