in reply to sieve of erothenes

Just for the record, the guy was (presumably) greek and was called Erathostenes, but Google refuses to turn up anything resembling a biography or historical references ...

Update : plaid is of course correct, the guy is spelled Eratosthenes (note the place of theta vs. the place of the tau).

    Close, but the spelling of his name I believe was officially 'Eratosthenes'. While 'Erathostenes' does turn up a few matches on google, I believe those matches were all based on misspellings.
