Marinus of Samaria, The Life of Proclus 7

“That was the time when the great favor of the gods that he had enjoyed since his birth became most evident. One day he was suffering from a serious illness, and he had been given up for lost when above his bed appeared a child, an exceedingly beautiful boy who, even before he announced his name, was easily recognized as Telesphorus. As he stood near, bending over the pillow, he announced his name and touched the patient’s head, curing him of his sickness, and then suddenly disappeared. This divine miracle testified to the favor of the gods for the youth.” – Marinus of Samaria, The Life of Proclus 7
