 APOLLONIUS of Tyana 4–96. Neo-Pythagorean philosopher 1st c. AD, known to us through a sometimes-romanticized biography written by Flavius Philostratus at the request of Julia Domna, wife of Septimius Severus and mother of Caracalla. Studied at Tarsus, traveled to Babylon and India and was then at Rome, from where he was expelled by Nero. Returning to Italy, he died under Nerva. Apollonius believed in a supreme transcendent god, clearly distinguished from the minor deities. Famous as a magician: the pagans considered him sent by God, a kind of pagan Christ to whom miracles and prophecies were attributed. Temples were built to him, and he was honored as a god. Christian writers Ambrose, Augustine, Sidonius Apollinaris speak of him with respect. D. Ghezzi, A. di Tiana nella storia e nella leggenda, Rome 1910; M. Dzielska, Apollonius of Tyana, Rome 1986; V.
