7. Of SIDON.


Astrological Poems

He was the author of astrological poems (ἀποτελέσματα), of which a few fragments are still extant.


The extant fragments are collected in Iriarte's Catalog. Cod. MSS. Biblioth. Mal. i. p. 224, and in Cramer's Anecdota, iii. pp. 167, 185.

Manilius, among the Romans, and several Arab writers on astrology, have made considerable use of these Apotelesmata.
