Cleostratus of Tenedos
Flourished(Turkey), circa 500 BCE
Cleostratus is credited, along with Eudoxus, with trying an 8-year cycle to commensurate the lunar and solar calendars. However, the claim that he invented the Greek zodiac is most probably legendary. A crater on the Moon is named Cleostratus.
