True, but Unconvincing:  Why does Planetary Brightness Vary - Sosigenes'
Critique of Homocentric Astronomy

In his commentary on Aristotle's On the Heavens, Simplicius (6th century AD)

AD).  With modern knowledge at hand, the criticism seems incontestable, but
this appearance can change drastically given the state of knowledge in
Sosigenes's 2nd century AD.
