|Comment||Text of Colonna (1984: 247-248) modified by DBBE.
The authorship of Philagathus Cerameus has been proposed by Colonna (1984) assuming that he is the same person as Philippus, the author of the allegorical interpretation of Heliodorus' novel that follows our epigram in the manuscript. Colonna (1938: 365-366) himself had proposed this identification in his edition of the Aethiopica. Among others, Bianchi (2006: 21-47) has lately tried to confirm it, while Acconcia Longo (2010) disagrees. For the latter, the author of the treatise is a Neoplatonic Christian from the 5th or better 6th century.
