Dear Skyreaders,

In the past fourteen years, you may have met my contributions in the traditional section of this forum, so perhaps I don’t need to introduce myself. But what I’d like to draw your attention to now is HOROI Project, my recently launched translation series, which I designed with the idea of bringing out all the previously untranslated Hellenistic and Byzantine astrological sources. You might know that although many texts have been translated by Robert Schmidt, James H. Holden, Eduardo Gramaglia, and others, there are still an awful lot of works, excerpts, chapters, and fragments originally written in or translated to Greek that are virtually unknown. What is more, the vast majority of these texts have never been adequately studied even by specialists due to the simple fact that no one has bothered to read, transcribe, edit, and publish them – they are still latent in manuscripts, waiting for being discovered.

Unlike the previous publications, my translations don’t and won’t appear as printed books or booklets but are accessible as online releases. In the present initial phase, you can find them on, but later the translations will be transferred to their dedicated website, where they’ll be organized in a more convenient form. The project is 100% community-funded, but even a pledge of $1 per month grants unlimited access to the texts. I also provide freely accessible translations for those who just take interest. The project’s Chief Advisor is Chris Brennan, and the current members of the advisory board are Steven Birchfield and Dr. Martin Gansten.

What you can find right now is texts from “Rhetorius,” Teucer of Babylon, the court astrologer of the Byzantine emperor Leo VI the Wise, Julianus of Laodicea, and an ongoing series that will cover the entire Discourses with Abū Maʿshar on the Secrets of Astrology written by his pupil, Abū Saʿīd Shādhān.

Please take a tour on the project website and also invite your friends who may be interested. Thank you!

Dear Levente,

I had not visited the forum for a while and just read this wonderful news. I sincerely commend you for your initiative and effort and may the HOPOI Project surpass Project Hindsight!

Just joined you on Patreon and will spread the word. Thumbs up
