Little isknown of him personally, nor is even the age in which he livedvery clearly ascertained. But as Plutarch, Sextus Empiricus,and Saturninus are among the writers whom he quotes, he isgenerally believed to have lived near the end of the secondcentury of our era: although some place him in the timeof Alexander Severus, and others as late as Constantine.

Hiswork consists of ten books, variously called: The Lives ofPhilosophers, A History of Philosophy, and The Lives ofSophists. From internal evidence (iii. 47, 29), we learnthat he wrote it for a noble lady (according to some,Arria- according to others, Julia, the Empress of Severus),who occupied herself with the study of philosophy, and especially of Plato.
