A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

Gennais. Asclepius kept me here some days at the baths and brought me back to Smyrna. There he appeared to me in the following guise : he was Asclepius and Apollo in one-both the Clarian Apollo and the Pergamene, called ` God of Fair Children', to whom the first of the three shrines is dedicated. Standing before my bed in this shape and putting out his fingers he made a calculation of dates, saying, 'You have ten years from me and three from Sarapis ;' at the same time owing to the position of his fingers the thirteen appeared seventeen., He said that this was not a dream but a waking vision, and that I should know it myself. At the same time he told me to go down to the river in front of the city and bathe. A beardless boy, whom he pointed out, should be my guide. These are the main points of the revelation. I would have given anything to be able to describe it in detail.
It was mid-winter, and a black north wind and frost. The stones were so frozen together that they resembled a continuous surface of ice ; the water was what you would expect in such weather. The story of the revelation had got abroad, and I was escorted by my friends, and by some doctors whom I knew and by others who came to share my trial or simply out of curiosity.
There was a considerable crowd besides (for a largesse happened to be going on outside the city), and everything was in full view from the bridge. There was present a Dr. Heracleon, a friend of mine, who admitted to me on the following day that he had gone with the conviction that at best I should be attacked by cramp or something of the sort. When we reached the river, no encouragement was needed, but still full of warmth from the sight of the god, I threw off my clothes and, without asking any one to give me a rub, I plunged into the deepest part of the stream, where I amused myself as though it had been a swimming bath, and the water temperate
