        A 3,year-old Babylonian tablet was translated last August and might rewrite the history of math, suggesting that trigonometry may have been developed before the ancient Greeks. Stephanie Dalley argues that the narrative reflects real happenings in seventh-century Assyria, where the widespread belief that revenge belongs to the gods explains why Assyrian kings described punitive campaigns as divine acts, leading to the mythologizing of certain historical events.
