Simonides of Ceos (Ancient Greek: Σιμωνίδης ὁ Κεῖος) (c. 556 BC-468 BC) was a Greek lyric poet, born at Ioulis on Kea.

Legend says that Simonides of Ceos was the inventor of the Method of Loci where large amounts of data can be remembered in order by placing images that represent the data into mental locations or journeys.[1]

You can learn the method of loci on this site in the actual village of Simonides -- see the How to Build a Memory Palace page.
