Filipides Greek

Filipides Greek is said to run from Marathon to Athens in 490 B.C. to deliver a message. According to a legend he died in a gate of Athens just after he had screamed ?Victory!?. And this is how he became a history.

Many years later Mr. Alexander G. Bell invented the telephone, delivered a message and become a part of the history as one of the biggest inventors.

Filipides died of exhaustion. Otherwise Bell changed the word and built his fortune.
