ABSTRACT
<p>Classical Greece and the subsequent Greek-based Hellenistic culture of the Mediterranean region are well known as the birthplaces of what was to become modern mathematics. Many of their developments are still utilized today in computer science. What is less known to the general public is that the Greeks were computer engineering pioneers as well. Thus, for the computer professional or computer historian on a busman's holiday, there is even more to Greece than the Parthenon and relaxing beaches. In this column, Department Editor Michael N. Geselowitz tours the history and historical sites related to the history of computing in beautiful Greece.</p>
