Cte­si­bius or Kte­si­bios or Tesibius was a Greek inventor and math­e­ma­ti­cian in Alexan­dri­a, Ptole­ma­ic Egypt. He wrote the first trea­tis­es on the science of com­pressed air and its uses in pumps (and even can­non­s). This, in com­bi­na­tion with his work on the elas­tic­i­ty of air, earned him the title of "father of pneu­mat­ic­s."
