THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

definition of sufficiency. I have often heard Musonius I discoursing on this point, I have often discoursed on it myself, and I listened to you at the Olympic festival praising moderation to the Greeks, when you told rivers to flow between their banks.

They replied that they were preparing the radishes for Herodes. ` He is insulting Regilla ', said Lucius, ` by eating white radishes in a house of mourning.' The saying was reported to Herodes, who removed the darkness from his house for fear of becoming the sport of the wits. This was the way in which Herodes' grief for Regilla came to an end.
His sorrow for his daughter Panathenais was softened by the action of the Athenians, who buried her in the city and voted to delete from the calendar the day on which she died.

He noticed that he was given to drink and to foolish love affairs, which caused Herodes
