A contemporary of Valens and Ptolemy !
Pitty that, as it seems to me, Schmidt (Robert) beleives him.
Because Pingree's interpretation of almost everything is totally wrong.
To cut all this short I will only say that another scholar: FRANZ CUMON who thrived 100 years ago, wrote an article on Antiochus where he absolutely adamantly prooved that Antiochus must have lived around 150 BC...

There I will enumerate and describe the writings by Antiochus that Schmidt did not even mention.
Some are published in CCAG, but many are ONLY in MANUSCRIPTS !
SOme of them are not even described in the CCAG (as usually is the case).
So, the only way to learn what are they about, is to open the manuscripts...
