Summary/Abstract: Following earlier studies by Raubitschek 1964 and Cameron 1969 the paper reexamines literary and epigraphic evidence concerned an Athenian philosopher called Iamblichus, who apparently played an important role in the revival of interest to his famous namesake in early fifth century Athens. The paper is prepared thanks to generous support of the Onassis Foundation in Athens (winter 2008/9) and based on my talk at the conference “Iamblichus: His Sources and Influence” (Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies at Athens, March 2009).
