Aesasar, the Etruscan name of the Supreme Being. Zschlnes, an Athenian philosopher, is said to have been the son of a sausage-maker. He followed Socrates continually, which drew from that philosopher the remark that the sausage-makers son was the 'only one who knew how to pay due regard to him. It is alleged that poverty obliged him to go to Sicily to the court of Dionysius; and that he met with great contempt from Plato, but was very well received by Anstippus, to whom he showed some of his dialogues, receiving from him a handsome sum of money. He returned to Athens, where he taught philosophy to maintain himself, and afterwards wrote orations for the forum. He wrote several dialogues, and others are attributed to him which are not genuine. The following are thought to be genuine: Concerning Virtue: whether it can be Taught:-Eryxias or Erasistratus; concerning Riches: whether they are .Good:-and Axiochus; concerning Death: whether it is to be Feared.
