Omar Khayyam’s birthday has come round again

May 18, 2017

 

 

It’s Omar Khayyam Day – today 18th May 2017 is the 969th anniversary of Khayyam’s birth in the city of Nishapur in eastern Iran.  We send greetings to all the people world-wide who value the contributions of Khayyam, still of relevance in the 21st century.  Take a minute to remember a polymath whose work, and that attributed to him, inspired so many others.

Our picture shows an image of ‘Old Khayyam’ created by Maurice Greiffenhagen in 1909.
