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!

  1. I’m somewhat of a self-appointed, undereducated Egyptian gadfly. 🙂 Imhotep was also a commoner who was given divine status after his death – a rarity.
    Also, from GrahamHancock.com:
    “It is thus quite possible that it was Imhotep who introduced the Sothic calendar based on the cycles of Sirius, or, as we now strongly suspect, merely formalized it from an earlier calendar that was already in place with the prehistoric star people of Nabta Playa.”
