Sosigenes the Peripatetic

Sosigenes the Peripatetic (Σωσιγένης, Σωσιγένης ο Περιπατητικός) was a peripatetic philosopher living at the end of the 2nd century A.D. He was the tutor of Alexander of Aphrodisias and wrote a work on Revolving Spheres, from which some important extracts have been preserved in Simplicius's commentary on Aristotle's De caelo.

He is often confused with the Roman astronomer Sosigenes of Alexandria.
