Life of Apollonius of Tyana
Life of Apollonius of Tyana is a book written in Ancient Greece by Philostratus (170-245 AD). It tells the story of Apollonius of Tyana (40-120 AD), a Pythagorean philosopher and teacher. The book extensively describes the alleged travels of Apollonius to Italy, Hispania, Nubia, Mesopotamia and India. Some scholars view it as fiction, and contend that Apollonius probably never reached any of these countries, but spent his entire life in the East of the Roman Empire.
