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.
