Archimedes of Syracuse was born c. 287 BC (in Syracuse). Not much is known about his life, modern day scholars still have no idea whether he was married or had children. He may have studied in Alexandria (Egypt). Archimedes died in c. 212 BC, during the Roman invasion of the second punic war. Although he didn't invent the lever, Archimedes was the first to accurately describe how it worked.
