Ecphantus the Pythagorean
Ecphantus or Ecphantos (Ancient Greek: Ἔκφαντος) or Ephantus (Ancient Greek: Έφαντος) is a shadowy Greek pre-Socratic philosopher. He may not have actually existed. He is identified as a Pythagorean of the 4th century BCE, and as a supporter of the heliocentric theory. Described as from Syracuse, this may or may not be the same figure as the attested Ecphantus of Croton.
