Pythagoras (circa 570-495BC)  Vegetarian mystical leader and number-obsessive, he owes his standing as the most famous name in maths due to a theorem about right-angled triangles, although it now appears it probably predated him. He lived in a community where numbers were venerated as much for their spiritual qualities as for their mathematical ones. His elevation of numbers as the essence of the world made him the towering primogenitor of Greek mathematics.

Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician and philosopher. Best known for his Pythagorean theorem, he was also a religious leader of Pythagoreanism.
