Ptolemy. Almagest
[Bk. 4 Ch. 6 p. 198]

Let us now turn to the three eclipses which we have selected from those very carefully observed by us in Alexandria. The first [eclipse] occurred in the seventeenth year of Hadrian, Pauni [X] 20/21 in the Egyptian calendar [133 May 6/7]. We computed the exact time of mid-eclipse as 3/4 of an equinoctial hour before midnight. It was total.
