From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    followers of Epicurus (who died at Athens B.C. 270), or
    adherents of the Epicurean philosophy (Acts 17:18). This
    philosophy was a system of atheism, and taught men to seek as
    their highest aim a pleasant and smooth life. They have been
    called the "Sadducees" of Greek paganism. They, with the Stoics,
    ridiculed the teaching of Paul (Acts 17:18). They appear to have
    been greatly esteemed at Athens.
