Memorizing the digits of Pi

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piphilology

The following poem is in Katharevousa Greek and yields π to 22 decimal places: Ἀεὶ ὁ Θεὸς ὀ Μέγας γεωμετρεῖ, τὸ κύκλου μῆκος ἵνα ὁρίσῃ διαμέτρῳ, παρήγαγεν ἀριθμὸν ἀπέραντον, καὶ ὅν, φεῦ, οὐδέποτε ὅλον θνητοὶ θὰ εὕρωσι

Translation:

The Great God applies geometry forever; To define the length of the circle using its diameter, He produced an infinite number, Which, alas, mortals will never find in its entirety.
