Abstract

"This is the first complete English translation of Geminos's Introduction to the Phenomena - one of the most important and interesting astronomical works of its type to have survived from Greek antiquity. Gracefully and charmingly written, Geminos's first-century-BC textbook for beginning students of astronomy can now be read straight through with understanding and enjoyment by a wider audience than ever before.
