Apollonides (2004)

(10,375 words)

Author(s): Haake, Matthias
This entry was written by Matthias Haake and published on 1 April 2015. Einleitung Über die Biographie des Apollonides sind keinerlei Einzelheiten bekannt; seine Lebenszeit läßt sich im ersten Jahrhundert v. Chr. ansetzen,1 da er von Strabon (F 4-6) angeführt wird und über Ereignisse berichtet, die im Zusammenhang mit Mithradates VI. (F 6) stehen. Wenn es zutrifft, daß Strabon Apollonides nur durch Poseidonios vermittelt kannte,2 so wäre davon auszugehen, daß Apollonides’ Περίπλους τῆς Εὐρώπης betiteltes Werk (F 1 u. 2) vor Poseidonios’ Tod um das Jahr 51 v. Chr. ges…

Hippalos (2211)

(2,154 words)

Author(s): Albaladejo Vivero, Manuel
This entry was written by Manuel Albaladejo Vivero and published on 1 July 2011 Kommentar Vor allem seit der Veröffentlichung des Werkes von W. Otto und H. Bengtson haben viele moderne Spezialisten eine Verbindung zwischen Eudoxos’ Fahrten und den Hippalos zugeschriebenen Entdeckungen angenommen. Nach dieser Auffassung war Hippalos der Steuermann des Schiffes, auf dem Eudoxos und seine Gefährten nach Indien fuhren. In dem Bericht des Poseidonios zu Eudoxos (Strabon 2, 3, 4-5 C98-102 = FGrHist 2206 T 1) heißt es jedoch, dass Eudoxos und die Griechen aus Ägypten, die mi…
