Greece Birthplace of Western civilisation, democracy, philosophy (Socrates, Plato and Aristotle), literature and historiography (Homer, Herodotus and Hesiod), drama and comedy (Sophocles, Aeschylus, Euripides and Aristophanes), mathematics (Pythagoras and Euclid), medicine (Hippocrates), architecture (Iktinos and Kallikrates), astronomy (Aristarchus and Archimedes), technology (Antikythera mechanism, the first computer in 80 BC), Olympic Games and many more. All forms of intellectual thought, Greek words and ideas, such as harmony, music, gastronomy, logic, eros, euphoria and many others, reached an epic acme, unique in world history, enriched a multitude of languages and inspired civilisations.
