Extractions: We know some information about the life of Autolycus of Pitane, but not really enough to date him accurately. He was a teacher of Arcesilaus who was born in 315 BC so Autolycus must have lived until after 300 BC. It is generally assumed that he was older than Euclid . As Heath writes in [3]:- That he wrote earlier than Euclid is clear from the fact that Euclid ... makes use of theorems appearing in Autolycus, though, as usual in such cases, giving no indication of their source. However, before we accept Heath 's 'clear' argument, it is reasonable to put a counter argument from Neugebauer The generally accepted argument in favour of Autolycus's priority is singularly naive. Theorem of Euclid 's Phaenomena consists of four propositions with proofs for only three of them while the missing one is replaced by the remark "that this is the case has been shown elsewhere"; indeed theorem and proof are found as Theorem in Autolycus's 'Rotating Sphere'. That a remark of this kind should be genuine in any Greek mathematical treatise, Euclidean or not, seems to me utterly implausible; I would assume the obvious, i.e. that a scholion replaced, perhaps in a damaged copy, the first of four proofs by a simple reference to generally known theorems. In fact I see no reason why

Extractions: One of the most eminent of the ancient Greek scientists, Autolycus was born in Pitane, in Aeolis (Asia Minor). He is cited by Diogenes Laertius and Simplicius. Two of his surviving works (extant in Greek, Latin and Arabic) are the oldest known treatises on astronomy. One of the three biggest craters on the moon (above the "Apennines" north of the centre of the moon) has been named "Autolycus" in his honour. "On the movement of the sphere": 1 book, extant. Describes a sphere constructed by the author to revolve about its axis. Upon it he marked two poles, the parallels of latitude and the meridians. The book includes 12 questions on spherical astronomy, and discusses the aspect of the heavens and the position of the different celestial circles, in connection with geographical latitude. Euclid consulted this work in writing his "Phaenomena".

Greek For Euclid Phaenomena. The Phaenomena is an astronomical book also attributed toEuclid, but probably the work of autolycus of pitane (315240 BC). http://www.du.edu/~jcalvert/classics/nugreek/lesson25.htm
Extractions: The Phaenomena is an astronomical book also attributed to Euclid, but probably the work of Autolycus of Pitane (315-240 BC) In addition to the Elements, the name of Euclid is also attached to a number of other mathematical works, among which is the Phaenomena, the faino/mena , or appearances Whatever one believes about the structure of the heavens, for practical purposes the celestial sphere is still the most convenient mode of description, and is used today. The real motions make no change whatsoever. One of the two fundamental astronomical motions is the daily rotation of the earth, which is mirrored in the apparent rotation of the sky from west to east once in each sidereal day, in which a star on the meridian at its start returns to the meridian again. The Phaenomena deals with this motion, as perceived by an observer on the surface of the earth. To get a feel for the Phaenomena, let us study one of the shorter propositions, Proposition 3, which states: "Any fixed star, which rises and sets, always rises and sets at the same point of the horizon." This is proved simply by establishing that the star describes a small circle about the axis of the firmament, and the plane of this circle cuts the horizon circle at two points, those of rising and setting. The figure for the proposition simply shows a few circles that suggest the facts, unlike the Elements, when the figures are rigorously constructed. Since we are dealing with a new subject, astronomy, we will find a different vocabulary. The words needed for Proposition III are listed in the box at the left. The word
