From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Timaeus of Locri (Latin: Timaeus Locrus) was a Greek Pythagorean philosopher living in the 5th century BC.

He also appears as one of the speakers in Plato's Critias.

Later references to Timaeus of Locri from Antiquity are by:

All ancient references to him seem to have derived from Plato: he may well be a fictional character invented for the dialogue bearing his name (see M. F. Burnyeat).
