THE SOPHISTS : POLEMON AND HERODES ATTICUS

must regard this case as one where Marcus showed himself conspicuously a philosopher.
He did not frown ; his expression even did not alter, as a mere arbitrator's would have done ; he turned to the Athenians and said, 'Make your reply, gentlemen, even without the permission of Herodes.' He listened to their answer, concealing the pain which he felt at many points in it ; but when the decision of the Athenian assembly was read, in which they openly attacked Herodes for winning the governors of Greece by his honeyed eloquence and exclaimed, ` Ah, bitter honey! ' and again, 'Happy victims of the plague! ' I the words so struck him to the heart, that he gave way to unconcealed tears. The Athenians in their defence attacked Herodes and his freedmen, and the emperor diverted his resentment to the latter, inflicting on them the most moderate punishment possiblethat is the way he himself describes his decision-only remitting the penalty in the case of Alcimedon on the ground that he had been sufficiently punished by the accident to his daughters. Such was the philosophical conduct of Marcus in this case. '
After his experiences in Pannonia, Herodes lived in Attica in his favourite districts of Marathon and Cephisia, and young men from every part of the world, who came to Athens eager to hear his eloquence, hung on him. Anxious to ascertain if he had annoyed Marcus by his behaviour in the law-court he sent a letter to him, which contained not an apology but a complaint. He wondered, he said, why the emperor no longer sent messages to him, though previously he used to write so often that three letter-carriers once arrived in a single day on each other's heels. The emperor replied at length in a letter dealing with many matters, and instilled a wonderful spirit into his words.
