Example text

Widely viewed as the greatest mathematician and one of the leading inventors of 48 antiquity. Archimedes, who hailed from Syracuse (the chief Greek city on the island of Sicily), probably became interested in math and science because his father, Pheidias, was an astronomer who tried to measure the distances to the Sun and the Moon. As a young man Archimedes studied with other scientists in Alexandria, including Conon of Samos and Eratosthenes, before returning to his homeland permanently. C. Hiero recognized Archimedes’ talents and urged him to use them for the benefit of the city and its people.

Antigonus marched with Alexander into Asia Minor in 334 B. C . and commanded the non-Macedonian Greek troops in the battle fought at the Granicus River. The following year Alexander made him governor of Phrygia (in central Asia Minor). Many people likely thought this would mark the high point of Antigonus’s career, but he proved them wrong. After Alexander’s death in 323, he and his brash, ambitious son, Demetrius (later called Poliorcetes, “the Besieger”), set out to gain control of the vast realm that the dead conqueror had carved out in a mere decade.

But Creon holds firm. He has a change of heart, however, after speaking with the blind prophet Teiresias, who tells him that what he is doing is wrong in the eyes of the gods. Creon hurries to the cave in which Antigone is awaiting her execution, but he is too late. To his regret, he finds that Antigone has hung herself, and Haemon now makes matters worse by comThe Greenhaven Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece mitting suicide in front of his horrified father. More misfortune soon plagues Creon as his wife, Eurydice, having heard the news of her son’s death, also takes her own life.
