The concept of zero! :D

No, the the Greeks did not invent the number zero. The Mayans were the ones to create the number zero.

The Babylonians were first to think about the concept within their system, but the Indians introduced it as a number as we know it today.

Egyptians!!! The concept of zero was invented by the ancient Indians, google 'Shunya'. Also the modern decimal system was invented in ancient India, and passed along to the west by Arabs.

Yes, then it was forgotten and re-invented by the Babylonians, forgotten again and finally nailed down by the Indians.
