Who discovered that the world was, indeed, in a roundish shape, that is to say, who discovered that the world is somewhat spherical?

Nobody is sure who first deduced that the world is round. It is most likely that it was done by observing the Earth's shadow on the Moon during a lunar eclipse. Aristotle (384-322 BC) said that it was common knowledge, at least among the learned, so it's been known for at least 2,500 years.

Morever, there's no actual physical evidence that people believed the Earth was flat in the first place. Urban myths.

Or Medievil Myths, whatever.

You say that but discovered would be the wrong word. He allows the world to be round.
