LUCIAN

adroit, unscrupulous fellow, who has seen the world, has only to get among these simple souls, and his fortune is pretty soon made ; he plays with them.
To return, however, to Peregrine. The governor of Syria perceived his mental warp: ` he must make a name, though he die for it: ' now philosophy was the governor's hobby ; he discharged him-wouldn't hear of his being punished.
Proteus now set out again on his wanderings. The Christians were meat and drink to him ; under their protection he lacked nothing, and this luxurious state of things went on for some time. At last he got into trouble even with them ; I suppose they caught him partaking of some of their forbidden meats.
Pilgrimage number three, to Egypt, to see Agathobulus. Here he went through a most interesting course of discipline : shaved half his head bare ; anointed his face with mud ; grossly exposed himself before a large concourse of spectators, as a practical illustration of ` Stoic indifference '; received castigation with a birch rod ; administered the same ; and mystified the public with a number of still more extravagant follies. Thus prepared, he took ship to Italy, and was scarcely on dry land again when he began abusing everybody, especially the Emperor, on whose indulgence and good nature he knew that he could safely rely. The Emperor, as you may,suppose, was not greatly concerned at his invectives ; and it was his theory that no one in the garb of philosophy should be called to account for his words, least of all a specialist in scandal. Proteus's reputation throve upon neglect. The crack-brained philosopher became the cynosure of unsophisticated eyes ; and he grew at last to be so unbearable that the city prefect judiciously expelled him :` we do not require philosophers of your school,' he explained. Even this made for his notoriety : he was in every one's mouth as the philosopher who was banished for being too outspoken, and saying what he thought.
