Only by mistake:
Quote:
It is remarkable that such accuracy was obtained in view of the fact that most of the "known"
facts and his observations were incorrect: (1) although it is true that the sun at noon is directly
overhead at the Tropic of Cancer on the day of the summer solstice, it was erroneously
concluded that Syene lay on the line. Actually, Syene is 37 miles to the north; (2) the true
distance between Alexandria and Syene is 453 miles and not 500; (3) Syene lies 3° 30' east of the
meridian of Alexandria; (4) the difference of latitude between Alexandria and Syene is 7° 5'
rather than 7° 12' as Eratosthenes had concluded.

From "Geodesy for the Layman"[^] pag. 6.
Some pople have genius even when they make mistakes.
Mircea

They are the ones we write code for, right?
