AEDESIUS (d. A.D. 355), Neoplatonist philosopher, was born of a noble Cappadocian family. He migrated to Syria, attracted by the lectures of lamblichus, whose follower he became. Ac-cording to Eunapius, be differed from Iamblichus on certain points connected with magic. He taught at Pergamum, his chief disciples being Eusebius and Maximus. He seems to have modified his doctrines through fear of Constantine. See'Ritter and Preller, 552; Ritter's Geschichte der Philosophie; T. Whittaker, The Neoplatonists (Cambridge, 1901).
