Not much is known about Sosigenes except that he was employed by Caesar for his calendar reform. The Roman author Pliny the Elder mentions Sosigenes in his work Natural History in two places:
Pliny book 18, 210-212:
"There were three main schools, the Chaldaean, the Egyptian, and the Greek; and to these a fourth was added in our country by Caesar during his dictatorship, who with the assistance of the learned astronomer Sosigenes (Sosigene perito scientiae eius adhibito) brought the separate years back into conformity with the course of the sun."
According to the second quote Sosigenes is thus credited with work on the orbit of Mercury.
