Synesius (c. 373 – c. 414), neoplatonist, bishop of Ptolemais in the province Cyrenaica in today’s Libya. Katástasiv describes the fall and ruin of that province. De insomniis liber, a book on the reasonableness of Dreams, written about 402, is deeply influenced by the Neoplatonists Plotin and Porphyry.
