:hmm: Never heard of them. Can you be a little more specific? Maybe provide a link to a particular book you're interested in? Give us a little more information. If you tell us what you find interesting about it, you're more likely to convince someone to turn your suggestion into an audiobook!

I've merged your two threads together. :)
Numenius of Apamea (Greek: Νουμήνιος ὁ ἐξ Ἀπαμείας, Noumēnios ho ex Apameias) was a Greek philosopher, who lived in Apamea in Syria and Rome,[1] and flourished during the latter half of the 2nd century AD

Syrianus (Ancient Greek: Συριανός, Syrianos; died c. 437) was a Greek Neoplatonist philosopher, and head of Plato's Academy in Athens, succeeding his teacher Plutarch of Athens in 431/432. He is important as the teacher of Proclus, and, like Plutarch and Proclus, as a commentator on Plato and Aristotle.
Only a little remains of the writings of Syrianus, the surviving works are:

A Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics.
Commentaries on two rhetorical works by Hermogenes.
Lectures on Plato's Phaedrus, preserved by Hermias.

Looks like it'll be hard to find good text sources.
