* about 569 BC, † unknown

Pythagoras of Samos was born about 569 BC in Samos, Ionia. Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher who made important developments in mathematics, astronomy, and the theory of music. The theorem now known as Pythagorean theorem was known to the Babylonians 1000 years earlier but he may have been the first to prove it.
