What we know about Greek astronomy is dominated by Ptolemy s Almagest (written c. 140 A.D.) closely related works like Theon s Handy Tables (end of 4th C.) but we have only very little info. about the practice of computing the positions of sun, moon, planets during any period of antiquity. Now, the Greek horoscopes are available for study as a group which could be expected to reflect the current techniques of Greek astronomy. About 60 horoscopes from the first 5 centuries of our era have been published since Young (1828) Champollion-Figeac (1840) in the papyrological literature, which comprises 18,000 texts. This vol. includes all horoscopes from this widely scattered material a few unpublished pieces. Illustrations.
