Euclid of Megara
(4th century BC)

Philosopher and disciple of Socrates who founded the school of Megara.

Euclid used Socrates thesis that virtue is knowledge while the universe is changeless and can only be understood through philosophy.

He was said to have found Socrates teachings so interesting that even though full blown war was going on he disguised himself as a woman and walked 40 kilometres to Athens everyday to listen to him, returning the same way in the evening.
