Person details

Pythagoras (forename)

AKA: Pythogarus

No title provided

Notes: Pythagoras (ca.570-ca.490 B.C.E.), Greek philosopher from Samos and later Croton in southern Italy. Pythagoras left no written work and thus many concepts may have been spuriously associated with his name by later traditions. While Pythagoras is now remembered primarily as a mathematician due to the theorem that has been given his name, his association with geometry and cosmography is probably a development of much later writers.
