I'm having difficulty coming up with online sources who don't seem to get the two confused. Both of the men seem to be the "death persuader" who led students to commit suicide. The list of ancient Greeks on this site says that the Magnesian was an historian and the Cyrene a philosopher, which makes me believe that the "death persuader" is the Cyrene (also check out the Cyrenaic school of Greek philosophy). However, if this article is more or less straight up regurgitation of EB 1911, that makes me wonder. Again, quick Google checks of both men seem to lead to very similar descriptions.
