Ādamī is noted for his work on instruments. Ibn al‐Ādamī, presumably his son, wrote an influential astronomical handbook with tables (zīj) that was based on Indian sources. The father is mentioned in Ibn al‐Nadīm’s Fihrist (dating from the 10th century), where he is called al‐Ādamī. Because of the similarity in names, the two have often been confused in modern sources.
