Pythagoras of Samos (580/572 BC – 500/490 BC) was an important Greek philosopher, mathematician and founder of the Pythagorean theorem. He is best known for this theorem, which was named after him.
He was born on the island of Samos.
Around 350 BC he moved to Croton, a Greek colony in southern Italy and there he set up a religious group. People believe that he died in Metapontum at a big age.
