Famous Greeks

A list of Greeks. Note: They are in no particular order, if you want me to add a person please leave a comment and I will add him/her when I see it. I want this to be heavily influenced by the community, there were many Greeks and I don't want to add all of the ones nobody knows. Also, if you have any other ideas for type-ins/hints, I am all ears.
