Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Carmen Astrologicum by Dorotheus of Sidon. Carmen Astrologicum by Dorotheus of Sidon. Dorotheus of Sidon, who appears to have lived in Alexandria, flourished in the first century AD. He wrote his Pentateuch five books on astrology in Greek, in verse.
This translation, from by David Pingree, is from a fourth century Astroloyicum Persian source. The first book is on the judgement of nativities. Book two concerns marriage and children. Book three is on the Dorotheus of Sidon, who appears to have lived in Alexandria, flourished in the first century AD.
Book three is on the length of life. Book four is on the transfer of years, i. Book five is on interrogations, i. In this book are the earliest known astrological charts. Dorotheus bases much of his interpretative methods carmne the triplicity rulers, by day and by night. All fire signs have the same rulers.
Camen earth signs have their rulers, as do air and water signs. He uses Egyptian terms. He, like the Greeks of his day, also uses the Dodecatemoria, which are the twelfths of a sign.
And many, many lots, all defined. For the first time in this edition: Pingree’s Preface newly translated. An appendix with charts in modern format. A complete table of terms and triplicity rulers. A table to calculate Dodecatemoria. Newly reset to match Pingree’s original edition.
Written a century before Ptolemy, here is the mainstream of Greek astrology. It will handsomely repay study.
