20. Of MYNDUS, lived at the time of Alexander the Great, and was particularly skilled in explaining nativities. He professed to have learned his art from the Chaldeans. (Senec. Quaest.

Whether he is the same as Apollonius, a grammarian of Myndns, who is mentioned by Stephanus Byzantius (s. v. Μύνδος), is uncertain.
