Theodas (or Theudas) of Laodicea, was a Pyrrhonist philosopher[1] and physician of the Empiric school,[2] in the 2nd century. He is mentioned by Diogenes Laërtius as being a native of Laodicea, a pupil of Antiochus of Laodicea, and a contemporary of Menodotus.[3] A physician of this name is also quoted by Andromachus.[4]
