* about 10 BC, † about 60

Geminus was born about 10 BC in (possibly) Rhodes, Greece. Geminus was a Stoic philosopher who wrote a number of astronomy texts including the influential Isagoge or Introduction to Astronomy. He attempted to prove Euclid’s parallel postulate from the other axioms. Geminus died about AD 60.
