Numenius of Apamea was a thinker who aimed at revivifying Platonism by purifying it of skeptical and stoic influences. Primarily, he tried to reassign transcendent status to being. Clearly influenced by Philo of Alexandria, he uses the term “being” with reference to god (understood as to on or autoon). In his treatise On the Good, he puts forth a theory of three gods (or minds), which heralds Plotinus's three hypostases (an influence Plotinus himself confirms). Numenius was the first to come up with the triadic structure of the deity, which influenced Porphyry’s triadic structure of Oneness and through him in a sense the trinitarian doctrine of Marius Victorinus.
