Of Diospolis in Egypt or of the Sebennyte [nome].[1] [He wrote] Enquiries into Nature,[2] Apotelesmatica in verse,[3] and other astrological works.[4]
Greek Original:
Μάνεθως, Διοσπόλεως τῆς Αἰγύπτου ἢ Σεβεννύτης. Φυσιολογικά, Ἀποτελεσματικὰ δι' ἐπῶν: καὶ ἄλλα τινὰ ἀστρονομούμενα.
[1] For the second of these locations, in the Delta, see Barrington Atlas map 74 grid E2. There are several Egyptian cities (and, again, an entire nome) called Diospolis.
[2] Also known as the ἐπιτομὴ τῶν φυσικῶν ; cf. Diogenes Laertius prooem. 10.
[3] The editio princeps of the Apotelesmatica was published by Jakob Gronov in 1698 (see Naiditch 104-6).
[4] I think it likely that ἀστρονομούμενα here does mean astrological rather than astronomical writings.
