He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323€“283 BC). HisElements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century.In the Elements, Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms.
