Excerpt: ... THE ARITHMETICAL PHILOSOPHY OF NICOMACHUS OF GERASA Although Nicomachus is frequently mentioned by other writers, our knowledge of his life is limited to three details. He flourished about 100 A.D., a date fixed by the facts, first, that in his Enchiridion harmonikon, Nicomachus mentions a certain Thrasyllus seemingly, identical with Thrasyllus of Mendes who died about 36 A.D.; and, second, that L.
