XII. THE PROJECT OF A PLATONOPOLIS COMES TO NAUGHT.
The emperor Gallienus and the empress Salonina, his wife, held Plotinos in high regard. Counting on their good will, he besought them to have a ruined town in Campania rebuilt, to give it with all its territory to him, that its inhabitants might be ruled by the laws of Plato. Plotinos intended to have it named Platono- polis, and to go and reside there with his disciples. This request would easily have been granted but that some of the emperor s courtiers opposed this project, either from spite, jealousy, or other unworthy motive.
