Pherecydes of Syros

Pherecydes of Syros ( /fəˈrɛsɨˌdiːz/; Ancient Greek: Φερεκύδης; fl. 6th century BC) was a Greek thinker from the island of Syros. Pherecydes authored the Pentemychos or Heptamychos, one of the first attested prose works in Greek literature, which formed a bridge between mythic and pre-Socratic thought. In this work, he outlined a cosmogony derived from three divine principles, Zas (Zeus), Cthonie (the Chthonic) and Chronos (Time).
