NOTE: This work attempts to create a world in which Ctesbous of Alexandrea created an Industrial Revolution through his inventions.


Ctesbius born in 285 B.C was the first and among the greatest of inventors of the New Antiquity, a musician, a barber, a inventor and a mathematician. He was the World's First first scientist in compressed air.

His early life was according to Hero's biography Ctesbius was born into a poor family following his father's profession as a Barber, "From humble beginnings came the great mind of all the post ages" He would gain the favor of Ptolomeic Dynasty at first with the "Hydralius "creating according to Hero's account a great musical splendor. "Wooing the Pharaohs and the Generals with fine melodies to their ears, Ctebius would one day triumph them all"

The Hydralis was the first water organ in history.

Among his greatest of his earlier inventions were the Clespydra and the Aeoliple, the most decisive in starting the revolution. In Mathematics he created the

square root.

The Clespydra was a water clock, the most accurate until Hero of Alexandrea invented the horus significo.

In the Aeoilple was the first steam mechanism invented, it found great interest with Plotemic Dynasty and Ctesbius was given funds and a place in the Royal Court to continue his project, for five years he continued his research in Physics, in 228 B.C he unveiled the propero, accelero, an indisputable masterpiece of his time, being used in a hydraulic version to ship cotton up the Nile to Alexandrea

In the last years of his life Ctesbius built the univerus - a metal construction that with a chemical reaction would unleash steel balls. Ineffective and dangerous, it would strike fear into the enemies on the battlefield, this would dramatically change history most notably with the Ptolemic Victory over the Selucid Empire at the Second Battle of Raphia on 221 B.C

Ctesbius died in 220 B.C, ,legend of Greek Science

Cotton, Parthians, and Romans

Mathematican Archimedes left Syracuse in 218 B.C for Alexandrea after hearing of Ctesbius inventions he was fascinated and wanted to continue Ctesbius's work.
