520    MARCUS MANILIUS, who lived in the reigns of Augustus and 
       Tiberius, is the author of the earliest treatise on 
       astrology we possess. He tells us hardly anything about 
       himself, and is not mentioned by any other writer. His 
       Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, begins 
       with an account of celestial phenomena, and then proceeds 
       to treat of the signs of the zodiac and the twelve 
       temples; there follow instructions for calculating the 
       horoscoping degree, and details of chronocrators, decans, 
       injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, and
       other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great 
       virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams 
       in verse form, the poet writes with some passion about his
       Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour in his 
       character sketches of persons born under particular stars.
       Perhaps taking a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, 
       Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to 
       narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable
       length. In spite of its undoubted elegance, the 
       Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides
       in addition to the first English prose translation a full 
       guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and 
       illustrative figures.
