Note 124
From Chapter 13 of the Decline & Fall

Porphyry died about the time of Diocletian's abdication. The life of his master Plotinus which he composed, will give us the most complete idea of the genius of the sect and the manners of its professors. This very curious piece is inserted in Fabricius, Bibliotheca Graca, tom. iv. p. 88-148.
