Old Babylonian Geometry Tablet

The tablet represents one of the oldest mathematical diagrams ever found and the earliest use of thePythagoras Theorem. Originating from the eighteenth century BC city of Larsa in southern Iraq, the tablet is part of an ancient mathematical textbook that includes a problem involving the construction of an equilateral triangle.

It displays several geometry problems that concern shapes drawn inside a square of 60 rods (about 360 meters) on a four by four grid of smaller squares. They are organised in increasing order of complexity, without solutions or numerical answers, giving the clear impression of a teaching aid or text book.

Each of the illustrated problems (which remain in whole or in part) consist of a description of the figures in the accompanying diagrams along with the question, "What are their areas?" Students are believed to have solved individual problems on small hand-tablets. The combination of text and diagrams has allowed researchers to restore most of the missing figures and obliterated technical terms.

The tablet has achieved great notoriety amongst mathematicians and remains controversial because it represents hard evidence that the ancient Mesopotamians used the "Pythagorean Theorem" thousands of years before the birth of Pythagoras.

 

 25 x 17cm Early second Millennium BC.

Comes with description of the tablet and translation.

Why don't we have an ONLINE CHECKOUT?
Due to the nature of our business, we have chosen not to use an online check out. We do have access to one but due to the nature of our product range and varying shipping costs we have chosen not to use it. Let me give you an example. Our products vary in size and weight considerably, from a small papyrus kit to a weighty full size Rosetta Stone. We now ship all over the world, and hence the cost to ship such a huge range of varying products to a wide range of destinations is not a simple one. So what we have chosen to do is, to ship to you at the best possible price for your destination. Within Australia we use couriers as much as possible, but couriers can become expensive in certain areas and hence Australia Post becomes a better option. There are even some times when we deliver products in person. So to purchase an item or if you simply want to know the shipping costs, either use our contact page to send us your inquiry and we will get back to you with the best possible shipping costs. We can then invoice you using a regular invoicing system, that allows you to pay by credit card or Australia Post Money order, or in the case of Schools we do accept Business cheques. We can invoice you with Paypal which is a great secure way to pay with your credit card or we can send you the information to allow you to process your payment with your credit card via Stratapay. With Stratapay you simply phone your credit card information to their office (for the price of a local call within Australia) and we dispatch your goods as soon as the payment appears in our system.(Usually within two working days). You can phone your credit card information through to us and we process you shipment immediately. Products that are in stock are shipped immediately. International orders usually take 7-10 days.
