Nanno the Abakos

Nanno the Abakos was an Athenian mercenary who operated in Greece during the Peloponnesian War.


Born in the city-state of Athens, Nanno had an interest and love for mathematics, so much so that her parents predicted she would pursue a career in working at a treasury in the city. However, she decided to forge a career out of being a mercenary, using her knowledge of mathematics to count and keep track of her kills on her personal abacus during her travels.[1]

During the war, Nanno ran into the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who accepted a bounty contract on her.[2]
