An ancient Greek utopian close to stoicism. Biographical information about Yambul is absent; his name is known from the composition preserved in fragments from Diodorus of Sicily (II 55-60). This is the “Island of the Sun", a utopia in the form of a fantastic journey . Here, the author describes some islands near the equator, where among people, admirers of the sun, complete equality reigns, freedom from work and marriage, as well as the community of wives and children. The impact of this message of the ancient Utopian on Campanella and Mora is obvious.
