Nicomachus, or Nicomachus of Gerasa, (Greek: Νικόμαχος; c. 60 – c. 120 CE) was an important ancient mathematician best known for his works Introduction to Arithmetic and Manual of Harmonics in Greek. He was born in Gerasa, in the Roman province of Syria (now Jerash, Jordan), and was strongly influenced by Aristotle. He was a Neopythagorean, who wrote about the mystical properties of numbers.

Note: When this was posted, no other copy of Nicomachus of Gerasa's 'Introduction to Arithmetic' was being sold on Amazon. The treatise, translated by Martin L. D'Ooge may exist in other shops and is recommended by '
