I was just reading a work on history of philosophy by a Brazilian thinker (Mário Ferreira dos Santos). In the chapter regarding Pythagoras, I found the following excerpt (the original is in Portuguese; translation is mine):
"Presently, a few worthy scholars over the world, among them we could mention the current king of Greece; dr. Sakellaríou, president of the University of Athens; [...] etc., are collecting all the reliable and most precious documents in order to reconstruct the true thought of Pythagoras [...]".
The book in which I found the quotation above was printed in March 1964. This was precisely the occasion of King Paul's passing away and King Constantine's succession to the throne. Given the necessary delay between the writing of a text and its printing, I guess the author was talking about King Paul I, rather than his son, King Constantine II.
Nevertheless I was unable to find any other reference to Pythagorical studies written (or, perhaps, simply sponsored) by King Paul I. Is anyone here aware of any such studies?
Thanks in advance.
