Imhotep, the Egyptian Pharaoh’s administrator, lived from about 2650–2600 BC and is the first sage known by name. From that ancient time there are still sayings in the Proverbs of the Bible that probably came from him, and even the Greek sage Socrates‘ (470 BC – 399 BC) dying words are a reference to Imhotep. Imhotep was so important to the ancient world that his works were still remembered 2,200 years after he was gone.
