STILPO

STILPO
Megarensis Philosophus tempore primi Ptolemaei, discipulus Pasiclis Thebani; praefuit scholae Megarensi, scripsitque dialogos non minus 90. Suidas. Tantâ eloquentiâ et gratiâ fuit ut omnes Philosophi ad eum certatim confluerent. Megarâ captâ, a Ptolemaeo Sotere et Demetrio, magni fuit habitus. Caput Stoicorum. De hoc Cicer. in l. de Fato: c. 5. Stilponem Megareum philosophum, acutum sane hominem, et probatum temporibus illis accepimus. Hunc scribunt ipsius familiares et ebriosum et mulierosum fuisse. Neque haec scribunt vituperantes, sed potius ad laudem: vitiosam enim naturam ab eo sic edomitam et compressam esse doctrinâ, ut nemo unquam vinolentum illum, nemo in eo libidinis vestigium viderit. Vide et Diog. Laert. l. 2. Sen. ep. 9. et de Const. c. 5.
