People - Ancient Greece: Anaxilaus
Ancient Greek physician and Pythagorean philosopher.

Anaxilaus in Wikipedia Anaxilaus of Larissa was a physician and Pythagorean philosopher. According to Eusebius, he was banished from Rome in 28 BC by Augustus on the charge of practicing magic[1]. Anaxilaus wrote about the "magical" properties of minerals, herbs, and other substances and derived drugs, and is cited by Pliny in this regard.[1] His exceptional knowledge of natural science allowed him to produce tricks that were mistaken for magic.
