Apollonius of Tyre (stoic)

Apollonius of Tyre (stoic)

Apollonius of Tyre, was a Stoic philosopher, who lived c. 60 BC.

He is mentioned by Diogenes Laërtius [Diogenes Laërtius, vii.] as the author of a work on Zeno. Strabo [Strabo, xvi.] mentions a work of his which he calls "a tabulated account of the philosophers of the school of Zeno and of their books"," and which appears to have been a short survey of the philosophers and their writings from the time of Zeno. Whether this Apollonius is the same as the one who wrote a work on female philosophers, [Photius, Cod. 161] or as the author of the chronological work ( _el. Χρονικά) of which Stephanus of Byzantium [Stephanus, "Chalkêtorion".] quotes the fourth book, is uncertain.
