Sandon (philosopher)

Sandon (Greek: Σάνδων; 1st century BC) is an Orphic philosopher mentioned in the Suda.[1] He is described briefly as a son of Hellanikos. He has been identified with the Sandon of Tarsus mentioned by Pseudo-Lucian in the essay Macrobii ("Long Lives"),[2] who was the father of Athenodorus (the Stoic philosopher and the tutor of Augustus Caesar).[3] His father Hellanicus may have been the Orphic philosopher of the late 2nd century mentioned by Damascius.[4]
