APONO (Peter de)

, a learned astronomer and philosopher, was born at Apono near Padua, about the year 1250. He described the Astrolabium Planum, by which were shewn the equations of the celestial houses for any hour and minute, and sor any part of the world: it was published at Venice in 1502. He acquired the name of the Conciliator, on account of a book of his, in which he reconciies the writings of the ancient philosophers and physicians: the book was published at Venice in 1483. He resided at Padua, where, from his practising medicine, and his skill in astronomy, he fell under the suspicion of magic. He died in 1316, at 66 years of age.
