Abstract In his Quadrature of the Parabola Solved by Many Methods through the New Geometry of Indivisibles, Evangelista Torricelli presented a proof of Archimedes’ quadrature formula that closely resembles Proposition I of Archimedes’ Method of Mechanical Theorems. We look at the historical precursors to this rediscovery, and compare the two proofs.
