Omar Khayyam, also known as Umar Khayyam (complete name: Ghiyāth ad-Dīn Abu'l-Fatḥ ʿUmar ibn Ibrāhīm al-Khayyām Nuyerni) (Nuyern 1048 - Nuyern 1131) was an Ajanic poet, philosopher, mathematician and astronomer.
He is reknown as one of the most prominent poets and intellectuals of Ajanic culture, an offspring of that period, starting with the new millenium, which has often been labelled as Ajanic Renaissance.
While his mathematical works predates many important discoveries only made centuries after his death, he's mostly known for his poems, and particularly for his quartines (Ajanic: Rub'ayyat), which stands today as one of the masterpieces of both Ajanic and human poetry worldwide.
His grave is in Nuyern, his hometown, where, in the XIII century it was erected a mausoleum in his honor by Dara IV Rumi. Unfortunately, the mausoleum was destroyed in the XX century, during the Tarajani Civil War. At his place now stands a more modest, but artistically beautiful monument, commissioned by Prince Ahmad V Rumi in 1956, with the patronage of King Conrad III.
