Special noteOld catalog headings: Philostratus, of Lemnos, b. ca. 191; Philostratus, minor
Found inAnderson, G. Philostratus, 1986: index (Philostratus the Lemnian) p. 3-4 (called the Lemnian by his older relative Philostratus the Athenian) p. 6 (the Younger Philostratus) p. 86 (Philostratus of Lemnos) p. 293 (conjecturally, the 2nd of 2 authors named Philostratus: the 1st (the Athenian) being author of the 1st series of Imagines, the 2nd (the Lemnian) being author of the 2nd series of Imagines)
LC database, 1-16-87 (2 separate hdgs., based on the common supposition, not accepted by Anderson, that the 1st Imagines were written by the Lemnian and the 2nd by yet another Philostratus: Philostratus, of Lemnos, b. ca. 191; Philostratus, minor, 3rd cent.)

Flinterman, Jaap-Jan. Power, paideia & Pythagoreanism, 1995: p. 10-11 (Philostratus the the Lemnian, also known as Philostratus III was probably 20 years younger than Philostratus the Athenian; both the 1st and 2nd collections of the Imagines have been attributed to Philostratus III; W. Schmid atrributes the 2nd collection of the Imagines to a son of Philostratus III and the daughter of Philostratus II, known as Philostratus IV, but this view is debated)
Dictionary of Greek and Roman mythology online, June 4, 2007: (Suidas describes the first Philostratus as the son of Verus and alive during the reign of Nero (54-68 B.C.E.), the second Philostratus as the son of the first and alive during the reign of Philip the Arab (244-249 B.C.E.), and the third Philostratus as the grand-nephew of the second and the author of Eikonas, Panathenaikon, and Troikon. This chronologically impossible description has caused great confusion and speculation over the authorship of Philostratus's works)
