Claudius Ptolemy was a Greek astronomer, geographer and astrologer of the second century, who lived in the city of Alexandria. He wrote the `Tetrabiblos', comprising four books on the subject of astrology, which was a seminal influence on the subject up until the Renaissance. Ptolemy also wrote `Geography', a gazetteer and treatise on cartography, compiling the geographical knowledge of the second century Roman Empire. This intriguing work helped shape the development of geographical knowledge and cartographic traditions of the medieval era.
