Knowing my interest in Damascius, a client posted this mss. in a binder to me in the early 80s for possible publication.. FINE RESEARCH COPY in binder, being a Typed Manuscript of 165 leaves, double spaced. typescript, plus additional material on the last days of the Academy in Athens, this latter article being a photocopy of Allen Cameron's article from the Cambridge Philological Society, 1969. Isidore is known principally as the teacher of Damascius, whose testimony in his "Life of Isidore" presents Isidore in a very favorable light as a man and a thinker. Damascius' "Life" is preserved in summary form by Photius in his "Bibliotheca", and in fragments in the "Suda". First English translation of the "Life of Isidore", based the text, "Damascii Vitae Isidori Reliquae", published by Olms in 1969. (Item ID: 14704)
