The School of Athens represents all the greatest mathematicians, philosophers and scientists from classical antiquity gathered together sharing their ideas painted by Raphael between 1509 and 1511. The figures all lived at different times, but here they are gathered together under one roof. Plato, Aristoteles, Socrates, Pythagoras, Euclid, Ptolemy, Zoroaster, Raphael, Sodoma and Diogenes have been identified with some certainty. Other identifications are more or less speculative. Aristotle (on the right) and Plato (on the left, pointing up) are the central figures. Diogenes, in blue toga, sits on the stairs below them.
