MELEAGROS

Syria, 2nd - beg. of 1st century B.C.
A GREAT MAN DOES NOT DO ANYTHING IMPROPER NOT BECAUSE OF THE PUNISHMENT OR OF THE BAD REPUTATION WHICH HE WILL ASSUME, BUT BECAUSE HE IS WISE.

An Athenian from the suburb of Erchia. He was the father of Isocrates, and a flute maker. Aristophanes and Strates were ironic to the occupation of Theodore in order to insult Isocrates. Theodore was pretty wealthy, and he gave his children a perfect education. At around 413BC however he lost everything and died, leaving behind 3 sons apart from Isocrates: Theodore, Telesippus and Diemnestus.
