    The Greeks believed in the geocentric model of the universe.

    According to this model, the Earth was present in the center whereas the Sun, moon, other planets etc revolved around it. According to Plato, the Earth was spherical in shape and it did not move. Greek philosophers, such as Aristotle and Plato, believed the Earth to be the center of the universe. All other heavenly bodies orbited around the Earth according to the Greek philosophers.
