  Eureka  \Eu*re"ka\  [Gr.  ?  I  have  found  perfect  indicative  of  ? 
  to  find.] 
  The  exclamation  attributed  to  Archimedes,  who  is  said  to  have 
  cried  out  ``Eureka!  eureka!''  (I  have  found  it!  I  have  found 
  it!),  upon  suddenly  discovering  a  method  of  finding  out  how 
  much  the  gold  of  King  Hiero's  crown  had  been  alloyed.  Hence 
  an  expression  of  triumph  concerning  a  discovery.
