Posidonius (125 BCE - c. 51 BCE) was a celebrated Greek Stoic philosopher and polymath originally from Apamea on the Orontes in Syria. He traveled extensively and is thought to have authored over 20 works none of which have survived fully intact. Some of his work, however, survives as quotations by other authors.
