Greek Mathematics/Philosophy

While getting my groceries today, I ran into a shop that used to be the place where math was done in ancient Greek times. I learned that most of the Greek math people were also closely connected to philosophy. The main focus was the degrees of the sun or how big the world is. Some of the most well known of the time were Archimedes, Hipparchus, and Democritus.
