THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

the type of Demostratus and others, came into prominence. Herodes prosecuted them for inciting the populace against him, and wished to bring them before the governors' court. They evaded him and secretly approached the emperor, on whose democratic character they relied. Marcus was in quarters among the tribes of Pannonia, his base being at Sirmium. The supporters of Demostratus lodged near the imperial headquarters, and Marcus provided them with food, and often inquired if they were in need of anything. His own convictions made him friendly to them, and these were supported by his wife and daughter, still a lisping child, who used to clasp her father's knees and with many endearments beg him to save her Athenians. Herodes was staying in a suburb, with towers and battlements. With him were two girls in the bloom of youth and much admired for their beauty, whom he had trained from babyhood to be his cupbearers and cooks. They were the children of Alcimedon, one of his freedmen, but Herodes called them his little daughters and loved them as if they were. They were sleeping in the strongest of the towers, when it was struck by lightning in the night and they were killed. This disaster made Herodes beside himself. He came into court out of his senses and longing for death. He denounced the emperor in an inornate speech, though you would have expected such an expert in style to have his passion in hand. He broke impetuously into bald and blustering words. ` That 's the result of my hospitality to Lucius, whom you sent to me : that 's your justice, making a present of me to a woman and a three-yearold child.' When Bassaeus, the prefect of the guard, remarked that Herodes was anxious for death, the latter replied, ` My dear sir, an old man has few fears.' With these words he went out of the court, leaving the water still high in the clock. We
