Product Description


"Professor Lehoux laudably serves scholars and all others with an interest in ancient astonomy and calendrics in the first large-scale study of parapegmata to appear in over half a century...[a] highly useful work. It will make a valuable addition to any university's research library." --Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage

"Lehoux has provided the most exhaustive study of parapegmata to date with an engaging discussion of the historical and intellectual implications of these sources. This work will be essential for anyone working on ancient astronomy, calendrics or related areas." --Journal for the History of Astronomy

Book Description

A clear and accessible account of a set of popular instruments and texts (parapegmata) used in antiquity for astronomical weather prediction and the regulation of day-to-day life. For the first time the sources are presented in full, with an accompanying translation and a new and comprehensive analysis.
