Nausiphanes , a native of Teos, attached to the philosophy of Democritus, and, according to Sextus Empiricus, a disciple of Pyrrhon. He had a large number of pupils, and was particularly famous as a rhetorician. Epicurus was at one time one of his hearers, and as he could not deny this, though he was anxious to be considered a self-taught man, he was obliged to content himself with abusing him, and maintaining that he had learnt nothing from him. (Cic. de Nat. Deor. i. 26, 33; Diog. Laërt. ix. 69, 102, x. 8, 14; Sext. Empir. adv. Math. i. 1, p. 215.)
