Here in the heart of Syracuse lies a statue of the great Archimedes who is considered among the greatest mathematicians of all time. Most famous for his work on buoyancy and the invention of the Archimedean screw, he is depicted here on a monument decorated with his many achievements. Right below his feet is he word “Eureka” which legend says is what he yelled while running through the streets of Syracuse naked after discovering principles of buoyancy. The rest of the monument is scattered with simple representations of his many areas of study in math. Shown below are pictures of his screw, work with mirrors and his math in explaining the lever.
