Giovanni Demisiani (Greek: Ἰωάννης Δημησιάνος) (died 1614), a Greek from Zakynthos, was a theologian, chemist, mathematician to Cardinal Gonzaga, and member of the Accademia dei Lincei.[1][2] Demisiani is noted for coining the name telescope from the Greek words tele "far" and skopein "to look, to see" for a version of the instrument presented by Galileo Galilei to the Accademia dei Lincei at a banquet honoring Galileo’s induction into the Accademia in 1611.[2]
