Timaeus or Timaeus the Mathematician
7. The MATHEMATICIAN, is quoted by Pliny (Plin. Nat. 5.9
). Suidas says that Timaeus, the Locrian [No. 2] wrote Μαθηματικά
, but whether this was really the work of the Locrian or not, cannot be determined.
The fragment on the Pleiades, preserved by the Scholiast on the Iliad
), and usually assigned to Timaeus of Tauromenium, is supposed by Göller to belong to the mathematician.
