ancient greek philosopher
|Date of birth||325 BC|
English: Bion of Borysthenes (Greek: Βίων Βορυσθενίτης), c. 325 – c. 250 BC, was a Greek philosopher. After being sold into slavery, and then released, he moved to Athens, where he studied in almost every school of philosophy. It is, however, for his Cynic-style diatribes that he is chiefly remembered. He satirized the foolishness of people, attacked religion, and eulogized philosophy.
