Jerome and Gennadius. Lives of Illustrious Men.: Aristides the philosopher.
Aristides 2413 a most eloquent Athenian philosopher, and a disciple of Christ while yet retaining his philosophers garb, presented a work to Hadrian at the same time that Quadratus presented his. The work contained a systematic statement of our doctrine, that is, an Apology for the Christians, which is still extant and is regarded by philologians as a monument to his genius.
Flourished 125, apology presented about 133.
Next: Agrippa Castor.
