Died on 1355

Izz al-Din Aydamir al-Jildaki;

(Arabic: عز الدين الجلدكي‎), also written al-Jaldaki (d. 1342/743 H) was an Egyptian alchemist from 14th century Mamluk Sultanate.

Despite being one of the most important Islamic scholars of the 14th century, almost nothing is known about his early life.

Al-Jildaki was probably born in Egypt into a family of Turkic Mamluk origin. In his writings he reveals that he spent seventeen years traveling through Iraq, Anatolia, Yemen, North Africa, and Syria.
