Archimedes was very proud of his Theorem relating the surface area of a sphere to the area of a cylinder. He asked for this to be inscribed on his tombstone. I will show that his pride was justified and that his theorem has had a major impact on the mathematics of recent times, with surprising connections to such things as the isoperimetric inequality and the Hodge signature theorem.
