 Cleomenes III - HighBeam Encyclopedia
In his determined effort to restore the prestige of the city, he began (227 BC) a war against the Achaean League and was successful in many battles.
At home his reforms were revolutionary: the kingship was made the supreme power, the ephorate was abolished, and the citizenship was widely extended, apparently to decrease the danger of discontent and to ally the people with the king.
Cleomenes came to his downfall suddenly in 222 BC (or possibly 221 BC) when the Achaean League, allied with Antigonus III of Macedon, routed the Spartan army.

 Models of the solar system
Aristotle deduced the correct shape of the Earth by about 350 BC (though the Earth was held to be round by earlier scholars), and the size of the Earth was correctly estimated by Eratosthenes of Cyrene in about 235 BC.
By 350 BC or so, the most widely accepted scientific ideas held that the world below the Moon was made of four elements (earth, air, water, fire), which naturally "gravitated" toward the center; this model, along with much of the rest of current knowledge, was systematized by Aristotle.
He proposed that the Sun was the center of the universe -- probably for religious reasons as the Sun may have represented God to him -- and even tried to estimate the distance from the Earth to the Sun, using trigonometry and the known Earth-Moon distance.
