Imhotep, meaning: “The one who comes in peace” (2655-2600 BC.), served under Egypt’s Third Dynasty, King Djoser, and is considered to be the worlds first architect and engineer. In addition to being responsible for the famous step Pyramid of Djoser—oldest wonder of the Seven Wonders of the World—he was able to pad his resume with such titles as: doctor, poet, philosopher, priest; scribe, sage, astrologer, interpreter of dreams, chief minister, and inventor of the papyrus scroll.
His own tomb remains unknown despite efforts to find it, and is believed to contain an assortment of sophisticated medical treatises that would, undoubtedly, blow our modern minds! As if we weren’t already impressed!
