Eudoxus Of Cyzicus

Eudoxus Of Cyzicus, a Greek navigator of the latter half of the 2d century B. C. Expeditions from Egypt to India had for a time ceased, when he revived them under the reign of Ptolemy Physcon. His bold enterprise in seeking the most direct route to India, to which he made two voyages, and whence he seems to have been the first to bring diamonds, and in attempting to circumnavigate Africa by the west, caused him many persecutions; and his reputation has been obscured by the fables with which Mela and others sought to embellish it.
