Conon I°

views updated


CONON I °, one of the authors mentioned by Josephus (Apion 1:216) in the list of Greek writers who wrote in detail about the Jews. Some identify him with a writer of that name mentioned in Servius' commentary to Virgil (Servius ad Aeneidem 7:738), but this is doubtful. Still more doubtful is the identification of Conon with Conon ii.
