The Academy was established in ancient Athens in 387 BC by Plato and was finally closed in 529 by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian. It was located in a small forest in the Athens suburb of Akademia, which was linked to the Athenian hero Akademos and named after him. The legend has it that at the entrance of the academy, one could read, "Let None but Geometers Enter Here."
