Εὔδοξος, Αἰσχίνου, Κνίδιος, φιλόσοφος, Πλάτωνος ἡλικιώτης: ᾧ τρεῖς ἐγένοντο θυγατέρες, Ἀκτίς, Δελφίς, Φιλτίς. καὶ ἔσχε πρὸς ἀστρολογίαν ὑπερφυῶς ἔγραψέ τε πλεῖστα τοῦ εἴδους τούτου: καὶ Ὀκταετηρίδα, ἔτι δὲ δι' ἐπῶν Ἀστρονομίαν.
His 52-year lifespan (Diogenes Laertius 8.90) is generally set at c.408-c.355 BCE, though in OCD(4) s.v. Eudoxus(1) it is given as c.390-c.340.
The present entry on him is a (brutal) compression of Diogenes Laertius 8.86-91.
