after a two-year-long siege, roman forces under general marcellus captured syracuse in 212 bc. the city is said to have fallen due to a peace party opening a small door in the wall to negotiate a peace, but the romans charged through the door.

according to the popular account given by greek biographer plutarch, archimedes was contemplating a mathematical diagram when the city was taken. a roman soldier commanded him to come and meet general marcellus, but he declined, saying that he had to finish working on the problem. the soldier was enraged and killed him with his sword. general marcellus was reportedly angered by the death of archimedes, as he had ordered him not to be harmed.

公元前二一二年,马塞勒斯将军率领罗马军队围攻西拉库斯两年之后,终于攻陷城池。据说,西拉库斯陷落,是因为议和代表团打开城墙一道小门,准备出城谈判,不料罗马军队乘机冲进城中。
