Timeline update

400 C.E.

Dominus of Larissa (fl. c. 450)
Proclus Diadochus (410-485)
Zhang Qiujian [Chang Ch'iu-chien] (c. 450?)
Zu Chongzhi (Wenyuan) [Tsu Ch'ung-chih] (429-500)
Eutocius of Ascalon (fl. c. 480)
Marinus of Sichem (Neapolis) (c. 480?)

The first two people on the list actually lived in the same region and developed a heated rivalry involving the works of Plato. When Proclus eventually won, Dominus left Athens and went back to Syria. You guys just dont know the fury of men until it involves mathematics!
