    I think both did, just independently. I prefer the notation of Liebniz though. I think it's highly possible that it will be found that Archimedes actually discovered it first. :)

    I remember reading about that. They saw that someone had erased it and used it for some religious writing. :)

    Archimedes also supposedly discovered to some degree a place-value decimal numeral system but didn't realize the significance of it. :(
