Anaxilaus or Anaxilas of Larissa (fl. 1st century BC) was a physician and Pythagorean philosopher. According to Eusebius, he was banished from Rome in 28 BC by Augustus on the charge of practicing magic.[1] Anaxilaus wrote about the "magical" properties of minerals, herbs, and other substances and derived drugs, and is cited by Pliny in this regard.[1] His exceptional knowledge of natural science allowed him to produce tricks that were mistaken for magic.
