Coriscus (Korskos), is mentioned, with Erastus, as a disciple of Plato, by Diogenes (iii. 31, s. 46), who also states, that Plato wrote a letter to Erastus and Coriscus. (iii. 36, s. 61) They were both natives of Scepsis in the Troas. (Diog. l. c.; Strab. xiii.)
Erastus, (Erastos), of Scepsis in Troas, is mentioned along with Coriscus, a native of the same place, among the disciples of Plato (Diog. Laert. iii. 46); and the sixth among the letters attributed to Plato is addressed to those two Scepsians. Strabo (xiii.) classes both men among the Socratic philosophers. (Ast, Platon's Leben u. Schrift.; C. F. Hermann, Gesch. u. System d. Plat. Philos. i.)
