Extractions: Version for printing 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

TMTh:: AUTOLYCUS OF PITANE autolycus of pitane (fl. 300 BC). Life One of the most eminent of the ancientGreek scientists, Autolycus was born in Pitane, in Aeolis (Asia Minor). http://www.tmth.edu.gr/en/aet/2/19.html
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".

Extractions: "Mathematical Collection": A vast work in 8 books, this was the last great treatise on mathematics of the Alexandrian age. All but the first and part of the second book have survived. An invaluable record of the mathematical accomplishments of the ancient Greek world, it contains a systematic account of the principal theorems in arithmetic, geometry, astronomy and mechanics, with commentaries, improvements and alterations, as well as original material.
