Much of the early Greek arithmetic and geometry can be traced back to the Pythagoreans. He worked on the problems of squaring the circle and duplicating the cube. Among his accomplishments was to bring the ordinary citizen into the Athenian democracy.
While working on the problem of squaring the circle, he was able to find the areas of lunes. E.) Hippocrates of Cos is known to us as the Father of Western Medicine and he is credited with originating the Hippocratic Oath that all doctors take upon completing their studies. He was a gifted orator as was documented by the historian Thycidides.
(Legend has it that this Minoan civilization is the lost civilization of Atlantis! E.) Thales seems to be the first known Greek mathematician and philosopher. Pythagoras founded a philosophical and religious school in Croton (now Crotone, in southern Italy) that had many followers.
) The Founding of Rome is very much embroiled in the myth involving Romulus and Remus and Aeneas. This date has been traditionally celebrated in Rome with the festival of Parilia. He is often referred to as one of the Seven Sages of antiquity. (Pythagoras had started an earlier school in Samos which he abandoned.) Pythagoras was the leader of a Society (Brotherhood) which included an inner circle of followers known as mathematikoi.
This pyramid is believed to have been built over a 20-30 year period and it is the only survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Rhind Papyrus (AKA the Ahmes Papyrus) is named after the Scottish collector, Henry Rhind, who acquired it in 1858. Catastrophe in Crete (Three dates are reported: 1380, 1450, 1628 B. The catastrophe was the eruption, and resulting tsunamis, of the Satorini Volcano (also known as Thera) in the Aegean Sea.This eruption is considered to be one of the largest in the last 10,000 years and is the probable cause of the end of the Minoan civilization.All of what we know of Pythagoras and his followers come from commentators who lived a hundred years of more later, since it appears that all knowledge and information was passed on orally. This empire lasted for over two centuries until it was divided by the successors of Alexander the Great. Four of the paradoxes were to have a significant impact on the development of mathematics. E) Under the leadership of the statesman Pericles, Greece reached the height of its glory in the 5th century BCE.What has become evident is that Pythagoras and his followers were considered to be, among other things, pure mathematicians. An interesting discussion of these can be found at Hippocrates of Chios (470 – 410 B. E.) Hippocrates of Chios was an excellent geometer who taught in Athens. Pericles was born to a family of wealth and position.
