New readings in Philodernus' Index Academicorum (PHerc. 1021, col. 33, 17- 19 and 42-44) show that the papyrus reports the age of Philo of Larisa at his death as 63, considerably younger than hitherto assumed. The validity of this new information and possible consequences for Philo' s biography are discussed.

Keywords: Philo of Larisa; Philodernus' Index Academicorum; biography; Apollodorus' Chronicle; Aristaichrnus (archon)
