Eudoxus of Cyzicus
Eudoxus was visiting the court of Ptolemy VIII . He returned from a trip to find the route to India with a cargo of precious stones and perfumes, which the king immediately confiscated. Somewhat later, after the death of Ptolemy VIII, Eudoxus went again, stayed away for about eight years, and was again deprived of his profits by the reigning king when he returned.
