author of a utopian work that was popular in the ancient world; his name was given to the theory that gods are great men worshipped after their death (i.e., Euhemerism). His most important work was Hiera Anagraphe (probably early 3rd century BC; "The Sacred Inscription"), which was translated into Latin by the poet Ennius (239-169 BC). Only fragments survive of both the original Greek and the Latin translation
