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:
*ma/neqws, *diospo/lews th=s *ai)gu/ptou h)\ *sebennu/ths. *fusiologika/, *)apotelesmatika\ di' e)pw=n: kai\ a)/lla tina\ a)stronomou/mena.
[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 e)pitomh\ tw=n fusikw=n; 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 a)stronomou/mena here does mean astrological rather than astronomical writings.
For further notes and bibliography, see under mu 142.
