The Archimedes Palimpsest is a parchment codex palimpsest, which originally was a 10th-century Byzantine Greek copy of an otherwise unknown work of Archimedes of Syracuse and other authors. It was overwritten with a Christian religious text by 13th-century monks. The erasure was incomplete, and most of the text, still visible, was published by Johan Heiberg in 1915. The manuscript went missing in the early 20th century, and a forger added pictures to some of its pages to increase its value.
