ADRAMYTION (Ancient city) TURKEY
Diodorus, (Diodoros). Of Adramyttium, a rhetorician and Academic philosopher. He lived at the time of Mithridates, tinder whom he commanded an army. In order to please the king, he caused all the senators of his native place to be massacred. He afterwards accompanied Mithridates to Pontus, and, after the fall of the king, Diodorus received the punishment for his cruelty. Charges were brought against him at Adramyttium, and as he felt that he could not clear himself, he starved himself to death in despair. (Strab. xiii.)
Rhetorician, 1st c. B.C.
