Silver leather mens' bracelet carved with the Greek word "Cosmos" which means "World". The ancient Greeks developed, over a period of centuries, an elaborate cosmology. By cosmology is meant the structure and the origin of the universe. The earliest views, dating back to the time of Homer and Hesiod (8th century BC) postulated a flat or cylindrical earth located in a hemispherical cosmos which surrounded or enveloped it. But by the time of the legendary and mythical Pythagorus (560-480 BC, app.), the view that the earth was a sphere in a universe which was itself also fully spherical, became widely accepted. The etymology of the word "cosmos" means both "order" and "world," because the ancient Greeks thought that "Cosmos" was perfectly harmonious and impeccably put in order.
