HERODOTUS
the
grc-at
Greek
historian
wasborn
about
484
B.C.,
at
Halicar-
nassus
in
Caria,
Asia
Minor,
when
it
was
subject
to
the
Persians.
He
travelled
widely
in
most
of
Asia
Minor,
Egypt
(as
far
as
Assuan),
North
Africa,
Syria,
the
countrynorth
of
the
Black
Sea,
and
many
parts
of
the
Aegean
Sea
and
the
mainland
of
Greece.
He
lived,
it
seems,
for
some
time
in
Athens,
and
in
443
went
with
other
colonists
to
the
new
city
Thurii
(in
South
Italy)
where
he
died
about
430
B.C.
He
was
'the
prose
correlative
of
thebard,
a
narratorof
the
deeds
of
real
men,
and
a
describer
of
foreign
places'
(Murray).
His
famous
history
of
warfare
between
the
Greeks
and
the
Persianshas
an
epic
dignity
which
enhances
his
delightful
style.
It
includes
the
rise
of
the
Persian
power
and
an
account
of
the
Persian
empire
;
the
description
of
Egypt
fills
one
book;
because
Darius
attacked
Scythia,
the
geography
and
customs
of
that
land
are
also
given
;
even
in
the
later
books
on
the
attacks
of
the
Persians
against
Greece
there
are
digressions.
All
is
most
entertaining
o
o
and
produces
a
grand
unity.
Afterpersonal
inquiry
and
study
of
hearsay
and
other
evidence,
Herodotus
gives
us
a
notun-
critical
estimateof
the
best
that
he
could
find.
