Description

Archimedes died during the Siege of Syracuse by the Roman general Marcus Claudius Marcellus (c. 268 BC -208 BC) when he was killed by a Roman soldier despite orders that he should not be harmed. Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. He is generally considered to be the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time. Woodcut engraving, published in 1864.
