Proclus or Proklos Mallotes (Greek: Πρόκλος Μαλλώτης) was a Stoic philosopher and a native of Mallus in Cilicia. According to the Suda he was the author of:[1]

  • A Commentary on the Sophisms of Diogenes (Greek: ὑπόμνημα τῶν Διογένους σοφισμάτων)
  • a treatise against Epicurus

His date is unknown; he probably lived at some point between the 1st century BCE and the 3rd century CE. It is probably this Proclus who is mentioned by Proclus Diadochus.[2]
