Bruce,
Do you mean European, Asian, Meso-Americian or African?
The influential depends upon the culture.
Do you mean influential to mathematics or influential to society?
Do you mean as a pure mathematician or as an applied mathematician?

You have to narrow down your question. The way is is asked now is
undecidable.
Peace, Don
