And all the time Proteus was drinking of that very water ! At this there was a general rush to stone him, which pretty nearly succeeded.

Finally, Proteus announced that he would cremate himself at the Olympic games. Lucian determined to be in at the death.
ON our arrival at Olympia, we found the vestibule full of people, all talking about Proteus. Some were in veighing against him, others commended his purpose ; and most of them had come to blows about it when, just after the Heralds' contest, in came Proteus himself, with a multitudinous escort, and gave us a speech, all about himself ;-the life he had lived, the risks he had run, the trials he had undergone in the cause of philosophy. He had a great deal to say, but I heard very little of it ; there was such a crowd. Presently I began to think I should be squeezed to death in the crush (I saw this actually happen to several people), so off I went, having had enough of this sophist in love with death, and his anticipatory epitaph. Thus much I heard, however. Upon a golden life he desired to set a golden crown. He had lived like Heracles : like Heracles he must die, and mingle with the upper air. "Tis my aim,' he continued, `to benefit mankind; to teach them how contemptible a thing is death. To this end, the world shall be my Philoctetes.' The simpler souls among his audience
