(romanized. Almanzora) Abu Ja'far Abdallah ibn Muhammad
(707 - 775)
Caliph of the Abbasid dynasty (reigned 754 - 775), patron of science and art at the court of which there were scientists, even from Western Europe. In 762 g. founded the city of Baghdad; measurements in the construction of the city led the court astrologers M. Naubaht and Mashallah. One of the great merits of M. was that he collected in his many translators (mostly Syrian) and instructed them to all the surviving works of ancient Greek and Hellenistic literature translated into Arabic. In large part thanks to these translations, astrology became widespread in the Arab world, and we were able to get acquainted with many of the values of Greek culture.
