Alpetragius was an Arab astronomer and philosopher of the Islamic Golden Age. Born in Morocco, he settled in Seville, in Andalusia.
He advanced a theory on planetary motion in which he wished to avoid both epicycles and eccentrics, and to account for the phenomena peculiar to the wandering stars, by compounding rotations of homocentric spheres.
