Hypatia, daughter of Theon of Alexandria, another mathematician and philosopher. It is fairly certain she studied mathematics and philosophy under his guidance and instruction. She has also taught about Astronomy, however she is far known for her work in Mathematics than in Astronomy. She became head of the Platonist school surpassing her father somewhere around 400 AD, an impressive feat for women of her time
She taught students all over the Mediterranean, and taught them the writings of Aristotle and Plato, spoke amongst an assembly of men and considered to have been one of the brightests scholars of her age
As is most of the cases of philosophers from millenials past. None of her writings survived however her contemporaries and students accounts of her have depicted her to be a renowned scholar and beloved teacher which ultimately led to her downfall.
