This edition was undertaken some years ago with 
the object of supplying the English student with an 
introduction to the study of Herodotus. While in 
Germany this study has been vigorously prosecuted, 
as is shewn by the excellent editions that have ap- 
peared as well as by a cloud of dissertations and 
programms, in England Herodotus has been, for 
whatever reason, undeservedly neglected. Conse- 
quently the assistance at the command of the English 
student — except in the case of the, let it be hoped, 
increasing minority who read German — has been 
very Umited^ 

In preparing this edition I have striven to make 
myself acquainted with all the work that has been 
done on Herodotus of recent years. The various 
commentaries have been constantly consulted; in 
particular would I express once for all my great 
obligations to those of Abicht, Kriiger and Stein. A 
repeated perusal of Herodotus has shewn how scanty 
are the gleanings which they have left to those who 
come after them. The selection of various readings 
has been gathered from the editions of Herwerden, 

^ Within the last year a couple of editions of Book YI* 
have appeared, which, however, I have not seen. 

ST. b 


Holder and Stein. The various dissertations and 
articles on Herodotus have so far as possible been con- 
sulted; a list will be found at the end of the introduc- 
tion. For the history Busolt's Griechische Geschichte, 
with its references to the literature of the subject, 
has been particularly valuable. 

The most difficult question for the editor of 
Herodotus is that of the dialect. The discovery of 
numerous Ionic inscriptions and a more careful study 
of the remains of the poetical literature of Ionia have 
furnished a very different picture of that dialect from 
that presented to us in the manuscripts of Herodotus. 
The question then is, did Herodotus use a form of 
Ionic more archaic than that of the earliest of the 
Ionic poets, more archaic than that of the literary 
language of the seventh century, or has his text been 
tampered with by grammarians of later times,* who, 
confounding Ionic with the language of Homer, 
corrupted the text in the belief that they were 
emending it? The latter hypothesis seems to me 
infinitely the more probable, and in this edition an 
attempt has been made to bring the text into harmony 
with the evidence derived from the above-mentioned 
sources. Unfortunately this evidence is fragmentary, 
and in too many instances it is impossible to de- 
termine with certainty the form in use in the fifth 
century. In such cases I have made it my rule to 
adhere to the traditional form, believing it to be the 
best course to proceed with caution and not to take a 
step beyond what the evidence warrants. To some I 
shall probably seem to have gone too far, to others 
not to have gone far enough; at all events an honest 


effort has been made to grapple with the difficultie& 
Fresh inscriptions will doubtless throw light on much 
that is now dark; in many cases of the contraction of 
vowels decisive evidence can be. got only from the 
discovery of metrical inscriptions or of new fragments 
of the Ionic poets. In view of recent £nds we need 
not despair of recovering some portion also of the 
poetical literature of Ionia. The evidence on which 
a decision has been arrived at in each case will be 
found in the introduction and the works referred to 
there. In one point the traditional orthography has, 
contrary to the evidence, been retained for the sake 
of convenience — the spvrUus nsper has been written 
as in Attic, though there is no doubt that it had 
disappeared in the dialect which Herodotus used. 

In the introduction on the dialect I have not 
contented myself with giving the bare correspon- 
dences between Ionic and Attic, but have tried to 
explain the relations between the two dialects, where- 
ever a brief explanation was possible. Dr Smyth's 
article on the vocalism of the Ionic dialect came into 
my hands in time to be of great use to me in this, as 
it is in the vowels that the chief difference between 
Attic and Ionic lies. 

Some references have been given to Mr Giles' 
Manual of Comparative Philology ^ of which he kindly 
sent me advance sheets. Unfortunately, as the work 
was not completed, reference could not be made to it 

For the assistance of the student, who is only too 
apt to mix up all dialects together, an attempt has 
been made in the commentary to discriminate un-

Attic words and usages. Care has been taken to 
secure accuracy in this, but it is inevitable that ^some 
evidence should have been overlooked on the one side 
or on the other. Kriiger's Commentary has been 
very helpful. Some assistance has also been got from 
Diener's dissertation De aermone Thucydidia qtuUenus

XeKTov, A complete lexicon of the Attic dialect is a 
thing greatly to be desired. 

In view of the different estimates of the two 
families of manuscripts it seemed desirable to give a 
selection of important variants. Purely dialectical 
variations have been neglected. 

My best thanks are due to Mr Giles of Emmanuel 
College and Mr Neil of Pembroke College, Cambridge, 
and to my colleague Prof. Wilkins, for their kindness 
in reading the proofs and suggesting many alterations 
and improvements. 

My thanks are also due to the publishers for the 
liberal spirit with which they have met my wishes in 
the matter of maps and types of coins. 

I have only to add that I shall be very grateful 
for any criticisms and suggestions. 


The Owens College, 

January 31, 1891. 


Of the life of Herodotus very little is known. He be- 
longed to the town of Hctlicamassus^, a

Donan colony, m which, however, the Ionic 
dialect was in officictl use'. The year of his birth is un- 
known ; it is given as 484 B.C., but that date has been 
arrived at by putting his oKfirf (40th year) at the time of 
the colonisation of Thurii 444 B.C.' His parents' names 
are given as Lyzes and Dryo or Hhoio*, and he doubtless 
belonged to one of the noble families of the place. He is 
further said to have been the nephew or cousin of Pa- 
nyasis^ an epic poet of some note who composed a poem 
called the Heraclea. He is said to have been compelled to 
go into exile in Samos because of the despot Lygdamis 
son of Pisindelis and grandson of Artemisia, by whom

which is found on inscriptions of H&licamassns.

poetry and his interest in the story of Heracles, e.g. n. 44. 
Panyasis is also said to have been a rcparoffKiiros, wliich may 
account for Hdt.'8 interest in oraoles and signs. 


Panyasis was slain, to have returned and assisted in ex- 
pelling the despot, and then to have left Halicamassus 
owing to the envy of the citizens ^ 

The next event of his life which is recorded is a public 
recitation in Athens 446 — 5, for which he is said to have 
been rewarded on the proposal of one Anytus with a sum 
of ten talents'. Here doubtless he established his fiiend- 

^ Suidas, I, c. This aoooont is not free from diffioulties, as 
Hdt. (vn. 99) relates that Artemisia had a son whom he calls 
a ycayias. Now this son who is called a P€cuflas in 480 b.o. could 
scarcely have been of age to succeed to the throne much before 
455 B.C., and in 454 b.c. Halicamassus appears on the Athenian 
tribute-lists as a member of the Athenian confederacy. This 
would leave no time for the reign of Lygdamis. Buhl, Philo- 
logui XLi. 68, thinks that the tradition is at fault, and that 
Lygdamis was not Pisindelis' son, but his younger brother. 
Busolt, Griech. Gesch. n. 99, supposes thai he may have re- 
mained even under the Athenian empire till about 449, not as 
irresponsible despot, but as head of a constitutional government. 
That would scarcely harmonise with his supposed expulsion by 
Hdt. and others. There is an inscription of Halicamassus on 
which Lygdamis appears (Bechtel, Ion, Inter. 288), but it is not 
of a nature to throw any light on the subject. Bauer, HerodoU 
Biographie {Sitzber, d. Wien. Akad. 1878) 402, rejects the 
tradition. That Hdt. resided for some time in Samos is shewn 
by his familiarity with the monuments and history of the island, 
and his partiality to the Samians. Cf. i. 70, u. 16, m. 39—48, 
54—60, 113, 120 sqq., 139, iv. 43, 88, 152, v. 112, vi. 14, 
VII. 13 ft. sq., 22 sq., viii. 15, ix. 106. Biihl, Z. c, explains 
the illwill of the citizens by his philo-Athenian tendencies, 
which would be distasteful to the aristooraoy of Halicamassus. 

2 This is related on the authority of Diyllus, an Attic his- 
torian, who wrote in the beginning of the third century. The 
date seems to have been calculated from the foundation of 
Thurii, Biihl, Philol. xli. 71. The sum is probably too high,

places as Olympia and Corinth are mere inventions. 


ship with the poet Sophocles^, and formed one of the circle 
of Pericles, the glories of whose house he celebrates in 
his history^. Soon after this he emigrated to the new 
Athenian colony of Thurii in lower Italy (founded B.c. 
444), and found there a second horned From thence he 
must have returned to Athens, where he was during the 
opening year of the Peloponnesian war*, and where he 
probably died^ The last event to which he refers is the 
invasion of Attica in 427 (ix. 73). His death may be 
placed before or about 425^. 

The travels of Herodotus hold a most important place 
in his life. As the information about them

IS derived from his histories themselves, 
no complete itinerary of his journeys can be drawn up, 
since it is only occasionally that he makes it clear that he 
had visited a place himself, and, when that is not so, 
there may be greater or less probability, but there can be

islands it might be expected that he was familiar, and 
this expectation is confirmed by the indications in his 
history^. The same is true of the coast of Asia Minor^ 
Towards the interior he is acquainted with the road 
from Smyrna to Sardis (ii. 106), also with Sardis itself 
(l 80, 84, Y. 101), and with the tomb of Alyattes in 
its neighbourhood (i. 93). To the east of Sardis it is 
probable that he penetrated as far as the Phrygian town 
of Celaenae and no further ^ Besides, he was personally 
acquainted with the valley of the Maeander*. With re- 
gard to his more extended travels, he voyaged along the 
north coast of Asia Minor as far as Colchis and the mouth 
of the Phasis^ On the western side of the Pontus he 
made his way as far as Exampaeus (iv. 81), and it is highly 
probable that he visited the neighbouring Greek colony of 
Olbia : there is no evidence that he penetrated into the 
interior of Scythia. The error into which he falls about

Ephesus, Smyrna, Phocaea, the district of Hium, and naturally 
the neighbom-hood of Halicamassus, the islands Lesbos, CShios, 
Samos, Bhodes, Cyprus. The way in which he speaks of the 
Ionian cities, 1. 142, vi. 14, indicates a greater familiarity with 
them than the above list shews.

having sailed along that part of the coasts In that case 
he must have returned from Colchis by the way he went, 
and made a separate voyage to the west coast. He visited 
Tyre on account of its Heracles-cult He passed along 
through Syria and Palestine and Arabia Petraea (IL 2, 
in. 1 1 3), probably on his way to Egypt 2. His way, starting 
from Tyre, would lead by Ashdod (*A^a>roff IL 157), Asca- 
Ion, Gaza, Jenysus and the south of the Serbonic lake to 
Pelusium^. The longest of his land journeys in Asia 
was his visit to Babylon, on which occasion it is probable 
that he continued his journey as far as Susa^ As he 
shews no first-hand acquaintance with the royal highway 
between Sardis and Susa^, he must have made his way 
through Syria, probably sailing down the Euphrates to 
Babylon^. There is no evidence that he penetrated 
f urther^ In Africa he travelled' through Egypt as far as 
Elephantine (n. 29). He also paid a separate visit to 
Cyrene^ Of travels in Lower Italy and Sicily there is no 
certain evidence except that he was at Thurii and Meta- 
pontum (IV. 15)^. It is a priori likely that when he lived 
in Thurii he should make journeys in the neighbourhood.

Halicamassus, and would thus fall in the earlier part of 
his life when, as a subject of the King, he woidd have 
special facilities for visiting the different parts of the 
empire. His travels in the Pontus would also have been 
accomplished before he left for the West. When He- 
rodotus visited Egypt he found it in the undisturbed pos- 
session of the Persians (ii. 30, 98, 99), consequently his 
visit must have been after 454^. It follows also from 
III. 12 that it was a considerable time after the battle of 
Papremis 4593. 

The results of his travels he has given to the world in

'****°'y' central idea of the struggle between the 

East and the West, which begins in mythical times and 
culminates in the invasion of Xerxes and his overthrow. 
After briefly touching on the mythical struggles between 
Greece and Asia (i. 1 — 5), he passes on to historic times. 
Croesus was the first of the barbarians who had made 
Greeks tributary to him, and so Herodotus gives the history 
of the dynasty of Croesus and his overthrow by the Persians 
(i. 6 — 94). This leads him on to an account of the rise of

the Persian empire. Beginning with the revolt of the 
Medes from the Assyrians he first gives some account of 
the Median empire (cc. 26 — 107), and then goes on to relate 
the birth of Cyrus and his miraculous preservation, and 
the overthrow of the Median power by him (cc. 108 — 130). 
Thereupon follows a digression on the manners and customs 
of the Persians (132 — 140). Cc. 141 — 176 contain an ac- 
count of the subjugation of the lonians and other peoples 
of Asia Minor by Harpagus, general of Cyrus, with digres- 
sions on the Greek cities of Asia Minor (142 — 151), the 
Carians (171), the Caunians (172), and the Lycians (173). 
This is followed by an account of Cyrus* conquest of 
Babylon (178 — 200), with digressions on Babylon and 
Babylonia and the manners and customs of the in- 
habitants (178—187, 192—200). Then comes Cyrus' ex- 
pedition against the Massagetae and his death, with geo- 
graphical disquisitions (201 — 214), followed by an account 
of the manners and customs of the Massagetae (215 — 
end). The conquest of Egypt by Cambyses gives occa- 
sion for an account of that country which occupies Book n. 
Book in. opens with a narrative of Cambyses' conquest 
(1 — 16), which is followed by an account of his designs 
against other peoples of Africa (17 — 26). Cc. 26 — 39 nar- 
rate various other acts of Cambyses. In cc. 39 — 60 he 
digresses to the contemporary history of Samos and its 
despot Polycrates, which leads to an account of Peri- 
ander, despot of Corinth (48 — 53). Then comes an ac- 
count of the uprising of the false Smerdis, and the death 
of Cambyses (61 — 66), the reign of Smerdis, his over- 
throw, and the succession of Darius (67 — 87), Darius 
arrangement of his kingdom, and the tribute paid to him 
(88 — 97), the country and customs of the Indians (98 — 
106), and of the Arabians and other peoples (107 — 117). 
At 120 Herodotus returns to Polycrates and relates his 
death (120 — 128). Then comes the further history of 
Darius' reign, the subjugation of Samos (139 — 149), the 


revolt of Babylon and its subjugation (150— end). Book 
iv. treats of Darius' expedition against the Scythians (1 — 4, 
83 — 144) with a digression on the Scythians (6 — 82). 
Cc. 145 — 167, 200 — 205 contain an account of Gyrene 
with a digression on Libya (168 — 199). With Book v. 
Herodotus begins the more immediate subject of his 
history — the Persian wars. The book opens with an 
account of Persian operations in Thrace and Macedonia 
(cc. 1 — 23), with a digression on the Thracians (3 — 10). 
In cc. 23 — 36 are related the causes which led up to the 
Ionic revolt. This is followed by an accoimt of the revolt 
itself and its suppression (37 — vi. 32), into which are in- 
terwoven a number of digressions— on the Spartan king 
Anaxandrides and his sons (39 — 48), on the royal road to 
Susa (52 — 54), and on the history of Athens (55 — 96). 
Book VI. 33 — 47 continue the narration of the further ope- 
rations of the Persians against the Greeks down to the 
overthrow of Mardonius, with a digression on Miltiades and 
his successors in the Chersonesus (34—41). Cc. 48 — 
92 relate further attempts of Darius on Greek freedom, 
and the consequent quarrels of the Greeks themselves, 
with various digressions on Spartan history. Cc. 93-i^l20 
contain an account of the first invasion of Greece by the 
Persians. This is followed (121 — 131) by a defence of the 
Alcmaeonidae and an account of the family. Then comes 
an account of the fall of Miltiades (132—136). The book 
closes with a relation of the expulsion of the Pelasgians 
from Attica, their migration to Lemnos, and their subju- 
gation by the Athenians. Books vu. — ix. form the crown- 
ing point of the whole, treating of the great invasion 
of Xerxes and his overthrow. In these the digressions 
are much fewer, — on Sicilian afiairs (vii. 153 — 167), 
the Athamantidae in Alos (197), Hermotimus and his 
revenge (viu. 104 — 106), the origin of the Macedonian 
roycd house (137 — 139), on the prophet Evenius (n. 93, 


With regard to the composition of the histories of 
Herodotus various conflicting theories have 
been put forward. The chief points in dis- oftaJSSS?r^*^**" 
pute are, (1) whether Herodotus published 
first several parts of his history separately, and afterwards 
worked them up into a complete whole, (2) whether books 
vn. — IX. were written before the rest of the work, (3) 
whether the history is finished, or whether Herodotus 
intended to carry it further. The chief supporter of the 
so-called Xoyoi theory is Bauer', who has tried to shew that 
Herodotus at first composed a number of independent 
histories (Xoyot) as Klyvrrrtoi Xoyoi, XifivKoi \6yoiy HfpaiKoi 
Xoyoi, ^KvBiKoi Xoyoc, Avdioi Xayou The question here is 
one of degree. No one will be inclined to deny that 
when Herodotus set about the completion of his history, 
he had probably already worked up different portions of the 
material separately, or that, especially in the first four 
books, the greater episodes might be treated as indepen- 
dent Xoyoi. But that by no means proves that these 
parts were composed singly without regard to their union 
as a whole, or that they were published in a separate form. 
Ammer has shewn that there is so extensive a series of 
cross references between the difierent parts, one part 
being so necessary for the understanding of another, that if 
Bauer's hypothesis were true, the final edition would have 
involved not merely a piecing together but a new revision 
of the material. No more can Schbll's^ theory be established

first. In the absence then of any decisive evidence to the 
contrary it may be assumed that Herodotus wrote his 
history in the same order in which it has come down 
to us. The further question might be raised whether there 
is any evidence to determine the date of composition of 
the different parts. The question has been carefully 
worked out by Kirchhoff^, who, from the internal evidence 
of the history together with the reference to it in the 
Antigone of Sophocles, arrives at the conclusion that books 
I. — III. 119 were composed by Herodotus between 446 — 
443 during his first stay in Athens. At Thmii for some 
unknown reason he did not resume the work till towards 
the end of his stay there, when he completed the third book, 
and wrote the fourth. He returned to Athens about the 
beginning of the Peloponnesian war and between 431/30 
and 428/7 carried the work as far as we have it. Several 
points in this theory are very doubtful. The passage in the 
Antigone is regarded by most as spurious, and the expulsion 
of that removes the most cogent argument that the earlier 
books were written at Athens. Against that also is the fact 
that in the first books too there are imdoubted references 
to lower Italy 2. The last part of book iil as well as book 

wars would be the part that would most please an Athenian 
audience; but the date of that recitation is too uncertain to 
prove anything, and besides there is nothing to shew that what 
Herodotus read was part of the history that we possess. He 
may simply have selected from the material he had col- 
lected some things that would be of interest to his hearers.

IV. bear certain traces of being written in Thurii*. The 
first four books then seem to have been written in Thurii. 
Whether book v. was written in Athens is uncertain, as it 
is not clear that v. 77 refers to the Propylaea of Mnesicles. 
Another much 'disputed point is whether his work is 
finished or whether he had intended to carry it on farther. 
Gomperz* {SiUungsbericht der Wiener Akademie cm.) argues 
that Herodotus did not intend to carry his work farther, 
that with the fall of Sestos and the defeat of Xerxes 
his task was finished, that he could not have gone on 
without being forced to relate the dissensions that arose 
among the Greeks, and that the words apx^w eikovro \%nrpfjv 
oiK€ovT€s fULK^op ff TTfdiada. . .dovXcvfiv form a fitting conclu- 
sion. On the other hand one might expect the history to 
be carried on to some more decisive turning point than 
the capture of Sestos, and an unfulfilled promise of a 
story which he says he will relate cV roio-t oTrnrOe Xoyoio-t 
(vii. 213) implies that when he wrote these words he meant 
to carry his history farther. In any case he cannot have 
intended to carry it on very far, as in referring to events of 
the Pentekontaeteia and even of the transference of the 
command at sea to the Athenians, he uses such expressions 
as ravra fi€P iy€»€To vaT€pov without remarking according 
to his usual custom that he will relate them elsewhere 3. 

A further question arises in connexion with the 'Ao-crv- 
pioi Xoyox. In I. 184 he promises an account of the 
Assyrian kings €v rolai 'Ao-frvptoio-i Xoyotcri, and his 
history contains no *A<r<rvptoi Xoyoi. It has been supposed 

The one or two references to Athens (i. 98, ii. 7) are easily 
intelligible in an Athenian colony.

that Herodotus published this as a separate work, but 
Kirchhoff {Die JEnUtehungszeit 4) has shewn how little 
support there is for this. His own explanation is not 
more convincing, that Herodotus, owing to an interruption 
in his work, forgot his promise. It is much more probable 
that Herodotus, when he wrote those words, did intend to 
bring in an Assyrian episode, but that he found no suitable 
place for it, and that the words remained uncancelled 
because he did not give a final revision to his work. 

Herodotus' predecessors in the field of history are 

generally classed together under the com- 
d^S^T"'^'"" ^^^ ^«^® of Xoyoypdi^oii. Following in the 

footsteps of the genealogical Epos^, they 
made it their chief task to set forth in prose the mythical 
material to hand. They composed histories, some of 
Greeks, others of barbarians, by cities and nations, 
without connecting them with one another, their com- 
mon aim being to put on record the traditions of the 
several cities and peoples without adding to and without 
taking from them^. They dealt chiefly with the founda-

dishonesty, cf. Wiedemann, Herodots zweites Buck, p. 23.

preferred to draw from the living fount of oral tradition, 
shewing no perception of the necessary shortcomings of 
such a record. Above all is this true of his account of the 
Persian wars^ 

In discussing the credibility of Herodotus it is neces- 
sary to distinguish between the trustworthiness of the 

historian himself and the trustworthiness 
or'newS^!"*^ of his authorities. As to the former, there 

is no occasion for doubting his personal 
good faith, or for disbelieving his assertion that he re- 
produced faithfully what he heard ^, all the less so that 
he often gives two or more versions of the same story 
or repeats what he looks upon as incredibla He exer- 
cises no scientific criticism of his authorities, and, unlike 
his great successor, shews no insight into the weak- 
nesses of oral tradition ^ But while we may believe that 
Herodotus repeated what he heard, it is impossible to have 
the same confidence in his authorities. With regard to 
foreign countries modem research has shewn that he has 
been led into many mistakes by ignorant or malicious 
informants, and in Greece itself the history of so recent an

event as the Persian wars had been obscured and distorted 
by various influences^, such as the popular view which 
looked upon the overthrow of the Persians as due to the 
special intervention of the gods, and the Greek imagination 
which adorned the story with signs and wonders and 
oracles for the most part vaticinia post everUuniy even 
altering dates to bring natiu^l phenomena into significant 
connexion with events^, the natural desire to magnify 
Greek achievements and to conceal what was to their 
discredit, the party hatred within the individual states 
and the enmities between the various cities. Further, 
the popular imagination reveals itself in the nimierous 
anecdotes which give a vividness to the tale. Hero- 
dotus plainly shews his admiration for Athens and 
especially for Pericles and the Alcmaeonidaa This in- 
fluence shews itself in many ways. In the history of the 
Persian wars the Athenians alone fall into no errors and 
escape without blame, and the stories to the discredit of 
the Corinthians and Thebans (vil 233, viii. 5, 94, ix. 52, 
69) come from the same source. The influence of the 
Periclean circle is seen in his unfavourable opinion of 
Themistocles, whom he disparages as much as possible. In 
these cases Herodotus represents the Athenian traditions 
and those of the house of Pericles. 

Herodotus was a man of deep religious feeling,* which 
led him to treat with reverence the religious mysteries of

' Thus the solar eclipse of b.c. 478 is made to coincide with 
the departure of Xerxes from Sardis, 480 (Hdt. vii. 37). For 
another instance of this see vi. 98 note. In this reepect 
Herodotus quite shared the popular belief, and in some 
instances his religions and ethical view of the world may have 
biassed his judgment, as in his account of the fate of Miltiades 
(VI. 184), where he prefers the mysterious account of the 
Parians themselves to the intelligible common Greek version 
preserved by Ephorus. 


barbarians as well as Qreeks. With regard to the popular 
beliefs he may be said to stand midway be- 
the popular tween the simple belief of earlier times 
'^^'*^- shared by the mass of the people of his own 

time and the scepticism prevalent in the cultured circles of 
Periclean Athens. In this respect he stands in somewhat 
the same relation to Thucydides^ as Sophocles stands to 
Euripides. Neither Herodotus nor Sophocles had in their 
youth fallen deeply under the influence of the new culture. 
He does not expressly deny the many gods of the multi- 
tude, but he looks upon the popular ideas about the birth 
of the gods, their forms and attributes, as the product 
of poetic fancy^, he derives many of their names and 
cults from Egypt', he contrasts unfavourably their wor- 
ship of images and their anthropomorphic notions of their 
gods with the purer beliefis and usages of the Persians^. 
He himself believes in a divine power (^cor, ro Btiovy 
daifjMy, TO daifiwioy) which guides and orders the imiverse 
and which brings sure retribution (rio-ir) upon the trans- 
gressor; in his anger the innocent often suffers with the 
guilty ^ In the affairs of men this belief appears as a sort 

^ The difference in the points of view of Herodotus and 
Thncydides is perhaps best illoBtrated by their attitude to 
oracles. Herodotus pays great respect to them and quotes 
them frequently, Thncydides refers to them but seldom and 
treats them for the most part with quiet contempt, cf. v. 26

as Thucydides does h roU iraBrfviKois^, But Herodotus 
also sometimes reveals his power in the latter too, as in the 
story of the wife of Intaphemes, of Psammenitiis (iil 14), of 
Lycophron son of Periander (in. 50 — 53). As the clauses 
of his sentences are simply co-ordinated with one another, 
not wrought up into cunningly constructed periods, he is 
considered a. master of the Xefif tlpofAtmj^ as opposed 
to the \4(is Kar€(rTpafifi4vrf or periodic structure. In this 
he imitates his predecessors, though an examination of 
their fragments shews an advance as compared with them. 
As has been remarked, this simple style with its resump- 
tions (eVoMiXif^cif) and natural anacolutha gives the work 
the character rather of a charming conversation than of a 
set composition, and to this conversational style belong the 
many expressions borrowed from the language of every- 
day life. 

The history at once became famous. He is tacitly 

censured by Thucydides. Sophocles' some-

and Aristophanes^ parodies several of his 
stories. Ctesias composed his Persian history as an 
attack upon Herodotus. Ephorus wrote a history of the

most part to have superseded him with the reading public.

a forced and artificial style brought him into esteem 
again, and he was much read and imitated. 


With the exception of some Epic words and phrases^ 
such as ax yap L 27, ^ lu viL 159, used for special effect, 
and some Doric proper names and technical terms as 
*Aytr, Oijpar, yofiopoi, the dialect of Herodotus must be 
regarded as Ionic. Ionic was the official language of his 
native city, Miletus that centre of early Greek culture was 
Ionic, and in the hands of the poets and Xoyoypa^oi Ionic 
had become a literary dialect. Within the twelve Ionic 
states of Asia Minor Herodotus distinguishes four varieties 
(rpairot I. 142). In the matter of inflexion the inscriptions 
shew no such diversity as would justify Herodotus' judg- 
ment, hence Bechtel (Ion. Inscr. 137 sq.) rightly argues 
that the difference must have lain in the vocabulary, the 
vulgar speech in some cases borrowing much from the 

^ The influence of Epic poetry reveals itself furthermore in 
many turns of expression. At the same time great caution 
must be exerdsed in patting down a word as Homeric because 
it is found in Homer as well as in Herodotus. In many oases 
it can be shewn that these words formed part of the ordinary 
Ionic vocabulary, e.g. drpexiis (Democr. Phya. Fr. 1), dareiaeat 
(Democr. Fr. 71, deddaBai Diogen. ApoU. Fr. 7), Sliyifjuu (Democr. 
Fr. 10, 20, Heracl. 8, 81), iXTo/uu (Heracl. Fr. 7, 63), ipdeip 
(Democr. Fr. 101, 106, 118, 135, 203, also inscr.), IkcXos (Democr. 
Fr. 21). Such a phrase as iy x^^P^ f' W is also found on inscr., 
J. I. 240. 26. Among Attic writers the dialect of tragedy ap- 
proaches to that of Hdt., since it was in Ionia that the Iambic 
metre which forms the dialogue of Tragedy took its rise 
(Wilamowitz von Mollendorf, Phil. Untermeh. \rn. 310 sq.). 
Another but less likely explanation will be found in Butherfrard, 
New Phrynichus 3 sqq., who gives a list of words common to 


language of the pre-Hellenic inhabitants : compare the 
pure Ionic of Semonides of Amorgos with the mixture 
of Ionic and Lydian in the fragments of Hipponax of 
Ephesus. In the absence of evidence it is impossible to 
say to which of these varieties the language of Herodotus 
most nearly approached. As Miletus was the centre of 
Ionic culture, Wilamowitz von MoUendorf (Zeitschrift /. 
OymTioLsialwesen^ xxxi. 645) decides in favour of the dialect 
spoken there ^. The ancient grammarians distinguished 
the Ionic of Herodotus as TrouctXi; from the uKparos *Jas 
of Hecataeus. From the scanty fragments of the latter 
writer it is impossible to discover how far this is justified : 
in any case the difference seems to have lain in the 
vocabulary not in the inflexions (Bredow, 6 sq.). 

Of the other Greek dialects Ionic approaches most 
nearly to Attic. Attic and Ionic form a group by them- 
selves, their most distinctive feature being the change of 
a common Greek 5 to i;, e,ff, fii^p==^fMarrjp. Within them- 
selves, apart from vocabulary, they difler chiefly in their 
diflerent treatment of concurrent vowels. 

In the following account of the dialect regard has been 
had also to the Ionic inscriptions and to the fragments of 
the Ionic poets, which in many points correct and supple- 
ment the testimony of the mss. of Herodotus. Distinction 
has been made between (I), cases where the correspondence 
is a regular one, i,e, brought about by the laws of soimd- 
change, as o-km) ==:(r«eia, (II), where the correspondence is not 
regular, but is due to some other cause, such as analogy, 
e.ff. tpaijv=iapa7fv. Here c does not correspond regularly 
to a, but both come by generalisation from a declension

The a of /liyaOot is perhaps due to the influence of fUyo^ 
In rdfma a has either come from the aor. (Tafu>p=*iT7j^fiov (G. 
§ 156), or from a present formation *Taifu>=*tmno with fi from 
the other parts (Br'. § 129). rpdvu follows the aor. (rpaTov, 
when the weak form of the stem is regular {(H-parop for ^irprov : 
Tp^u:siifrtrfOP : ipe&yu). Ionic -70101 comes from -yaj^o-r, Attic

stems, e.g. rokfta^TokfUf (cfl Bi^. § 70 c). 

fuv'afxfipl'n points to a weaker form of the stem of ^/Mip, 
ifftipa. In dp^firfTiUf dfj^ffpar^t rj : a may represent strong 
and weak forms of the root (as prfr/vviiL : ippdyify) : Xa|ts is 
more regular than Xij^u, stems in -rt- having originally a weak 
grade of Towel: in Xdlo^tat, where tj would be regular, the 
future having a strong grade of vowel, a comes from the pres. 
and the aor. The same is the case with \dfi\f^ofiau., where 
the /I also comes from the present : more closely parallel to 
Xd^/uu is the Milesian Xdrf^oftai J. J. 100, where /i has not 
intruded itself. In cases like rdXfta, there is confusion be- 
tween different ways of forming the fem.

The origin of the word is obscure. 

2. Ionic d. 

Indo-G^rmanic and common Greek d in Ionic regularly be- 
came 17. When a occurs it is generally the result either (a) of 
contraction, rifif, or (b) of compensatory lengthening as wSUrass 
*TayTLa, OdavtaPt (Xda^up = *6dyxi(ifv, *iXdyxiti>p (for *B€yxi!^t 
*iXeyxi<ap with a from pos. and sup., £r. VG. n. 1, § 135), 
<f>ddp(a=*4>$aM/'(a, or (e) the word is of another dialect, e.g. 
*A7(s, Kpa^tt, McyAaot (Doric). In pjSLXXop for *fieXi<» a is due 
to fidXa^ fidXiffTo, and is lengthened to a on the analogy of 
0ia<rufPt iXdaauv (OsthofiF, Perfect^ 450). There are also some 
other words where the reason for the a is doubtful, such as 
cacrci;, KapdSoK^u, l$ay€vii%j Smyth Foe, 42.

In ipaifp, dparfp (which is also Ionic, J. J. 68) an original 
declension ipanfp, *dpaaf6t has been generalized in two different 
ways. r4ffer€p€t and rirrapis represent two forms of the

ftkp and /uT/i' are different ablaut forms of the same word. 
It has been suggested that llvctav for ri<rcrta¥ is due to the analogy 
of the opposite Kp4ff<nav. (fforufv has drawn after itself the yerb. 

lonio has kept the form of the root ep {ep^ffvu). Attic has 
the ablaut o which is normal in such stems, e,g, X^cn : X670S. 

'AkKfiitaw oomes not from 'AXx/ua/drr, but from **A\Kp.'fftay, 
*'AXir/udwr (whence in Doric 'AXxfuay). dlpMcun comes from 
*dlfjarfioty *difj»dios^ and stands in the same relation to dlpjfoios

Kpiffvioif and fi4^up=*Kp€T'iw, *fi€y'iiup are more original 
than Kpelmop and puel^v. The et of the latter has been ex- 
plained as being due to the analogy of x^^P<^» <i/^^(^* Both 
^t and €ls come from h-t, the former originally before words 
beginning with a consonant (cf. K€vrbi=^K€iKrrhi Meyer Gr.

Lat. dico, itada^* fifioda. J ff/riO is more original than efw^a

(KZ, zxz. 404). twriajf is found on inscr. of Miletus (1. 1. 100). 
The Ionic poets have -etd as in Attic, cf. Smyth Voe. p. 72. 

4. Ionic 17.

or p, 0CJCU7, lo'xvp^f wptivs, rpuiicopra. a is preserved in some 
Doric words 'Yarai, *Ovearai, Xoiptarau 

Ionic has thus gone a step b^ond Attic in the change of 
original a to 1;, or as is more likely, Attic has after a vowel or 
p changed again 97 to a (Br^. § 10, KZ. xzxi. 289). Some Ionic 
alphabets such as those Of Ceos and Naxos had different 
symbols for 17s original S and 17= original a. 

II. (a) =a, d(7rXi7(rtof, voWaTrXijo'ios : vrfvsy yprfys :

The relation of 9iT\/iffios to dixXdo-toj is uncertain. In 
ypvvty vrfiij V has been restored from the oblique oases, Idg. 
ndHs having become in Gr. vUDs (cf. G. 181, 4). In the other 
cases we have to do with different ways of forming the 
feminine, -a, -o, -la, -la, cf. Meyer Gr^, § 48, Br^. § 70 c.

are found in Ionic as well as Upos^ etc. 


The tf ss. of Hdt. have more often iep6f than 2p6f , and Upfn 
is also more common on inscr. That t has arisen by con- 
traction from (c is highly improbable. At the same time 
Lesbian Xpoi makes it impossible to derive Ipbi from *iffpbt a 
by-form of tep6s=*^6pot {KZ, zziz. 849); for another ex- 
planation see Deutsche LitteraXurzeitung^ 1890, p. 1538.

10. at, oij avy cv~ Attic ai, ot, av, ev. 

In the diphthongs at, ei, oi, there is a tendency in aU Greek 
dialects to drop the second part of the diphthong before a 
following vowel. This prevails in early Ionic only to a very 
limited extent. 

(a) ax. In inscriptions the loss of e is found only in 
Chalcidian and Eretrian; there is no well-authenticated in- 
stance from Asiatic Ionic (Fritsch 37, 88). The Ionic poets 
write at. In Hdt. the chief variation is in ate/, act. Inscrr. 
and poets shew that aiel is the correct form, alerds is the form 
given by the mss., also KXalu), Kalu>t i\cuoy, iktUri. Proper 
names in -atei/t as 'Itmcueiis, UXaraie^s preserve the t {^tjKcuetk 
sometimes appears as ^w/caet/s), as do proper names in -at/17, 
-attir6s, 'CuLSf as 'Axat/17, *Axouk6s, BomaiLs, HXaraUi. On the 
other hand Qripals is right, since it comes from an -a- stem. 

(&) €1. On inscriptions of the fifth century loss of t is very 
rare— xoi^cay LI. 156 B 30 (Teos), datrhiv 100 (Miletus). On the 
other hand in adj. in -eios from -eo*- stems in one or two cases 
the MSB. of Hdt. are in favour of -eos, reXeos (inscr. riXeios), iiri- 
HlSeos, but iir^Tcios, in inrtapia they vary (subs, from -eo-- adj. 
have regularly et, as dXriBeiri). Of adj. from other stems 
infu(xif€voiy fiTfXeios, but )36eos, xV^o'* * ApifJido'ireos, 'TT€pp6p€os; 
in aXycos v. 58 the mss. vary. In these cases Fritsch would 
write -eto;. Further in fem. adj. in -^a=eta, if i has been 
actually lost, cf. %S e. 

{c) 01. On inscr. of fifth century only one instance of the 
loss of t (only before an e sound) is found, and that is Eretrian 
Ei}/3o6t;s, 1. 1. 19, 31. On the Asiatic mainland ot is metrically 
short in iirolrjffe, ( Abdera) 1. 1. 162. Examples of the retention of 
t are numerous. Of Lyric poets Anacreon has eirroi^di;, ddoidrrus. 
In Hdt. ot prevails, eiJyo/17, Tpovolii, wolri (=:*xo/ta), polrit ^Xot6s, 
bfioxpolri: in errolri { = *ffTo/id) the A family of mss. has 0toi^: 
for Ei)/3oe6i$f, etc. the mss. have mostly Ei^oet/t; x^^* ^ the 
two last cases Fritsch would prefer Et^jSotei/;, x^^^ (after 


xXoioDff^oi, xXot<^s» l>nt for XX617 cf. Arch. (?) 108, = *x^^ Brug- 
mann J/. U. i. 51). 

11. Ionic €1. 

Here a distinction must be made between (1) the 
original diphthong ei, and (2) ei due to compensatory 

1. €i==€t, e.g, TTct^o), (l)€ibofiai. 

2. (a)=ci, n€l<rofjLat = *fr€v$a'Ofiai, dyy€ikai=*dyy€\- 

€ivai^*€(TPaiy \€iXiOi=*xi<r\ioi. 

In Attic ifffUp as compared with Ionic eifiiv, 9 has been 
restored by analogy from the other persons. In Attic h/vD^tx 
stands for regular e&v/u, Hdt. €ic^\»vc9ox, *i<rpvfu was restored 
from the other parts of the verb, and that in accordance with 
a later law of sound-change became bryvfu, cf. IIeXoir6i'vi7(ros= 
IIAoirof vrjaoi (KZ. xzvii. 589 sqq.). 

(6) = €, ciyaror, €ipeK€Vy Ktivos, $€lvoSf (rrtivoQ : 
clXtVa'a) : dfipi;, €Lpofiai, tlptaraxa : €iptov : ivtiKai : ^fio. 

In Ionic pf, X/*, p/became v, X, p, with compensatory lengthen- 
ing of the preceding vowel, in Attic p,\ p without lengthening. 
Thus e&aros, (paTos = *(ip/'aToSf €tP€KCP = *ffefjLr€Ka, § 3, ^€lpos= 
iiipfos (found on inscr. of Corcyra), etc. ; clXorerw probably = */cX- 
fiffffia, Lat. volvo ; 5«/n^, hipvi = *56/>/a ; etpofuu probably = ^fi^p/bpjcu. 
elpos {€tpiop) = */€p/'oSi Lat. verr^a; (Br*. § 73). The relation of 
€P€iKat to ipiyKoi is unexplained. In clpOopxu protect ^ the origin 
of the £1 is not certain ; perhaps it is prothetic= *^/6pi/o/uu as in 
Upyia=*i-f4prf(a, Ionic €lpi0T]P comes from ^i-fkpidrfp while 
Attic ipprtiBvip comes from ^ifpffjdTiv, fet(l=*^£/i(l, Skr. ydvya. 

12. ov. 

Here again one must distinguish between (1) the diph- 
thong ov, (2) ov arising from compensation. 

1. ov^ovj <nrovb^. 

2. (a)=Bov, fiovXi] =*^o\pa. 

(6) = o, yovpora, fiovpos : oZpos (boundary) : povtros. 
yovporaf futvpot^ ovpoi^'*y op foray * pLOpfoty *opfos (cf. § 11). 

ST. d 


From ^6pv one would expect joi^parof etc. : in the hss. 66paTos 
etc. are more frequent, cf. Sopi Arch. 2. So it. 33, 34 the hss. 
have Kdfni where we should expect Kovfnj. If Attic oXos is actually 
identical letter by letter with Skr. sdrvas^ all, Ionic o\os is very 
peculiar. Skos is also Doric, so that it may well be doubted 
if /* has been regularly lost here. The uss. are in favour 
of opos mountain, not ovpos: 6f>os is also found in the Ionic 
poets. Arch. 115, Anacr. 2, 5, Hipp. 35 (oifpea-t Sem. 14), and is 
the correct form, as p does not here stand for pf{KZ. xxix. 
357). The origin of voOo-of is uncertain ; the verb is voa^to. 
oih^ofjM is the prevalent form in the mss. of Hdt. (but dyofidj^Uy 
6vofmbfu)j but there is no justification for ov. ouofia is doubtless 
the correct form : oHvofjua. has arisen from misunderstanding of 
the crasis roHvofjua., helped by the Homeric oHyofia, where o is 
lengthened metn causa. 

Contraction of Vowels. 

13. The question of the contraction of vowels is the 
most difficult problem connected with the dialect of 
Herodotus. Contemporary and earlier inscriptions and 
the language of the Ionic poets, even those of the seventh 
century, exhibit contraction in a much more advanced 
state than do our manuscripts of Herodotus. Now it is 
altogether incredible that a form, e.g. boKtl, contracted in 
the literary language of the sixth or seventh centuries 
should appear uucontracted in the literary language of the 
fifth century. The necessary conclusion from this is that 
many uncontracted forms must have been foisted upon 
Herodotus m later times (cf. Wilamowitz von Mollendorf, 
Fhil. Untersuc/i. vii. 315). The chief cause of this was the 
confusion of the dialect of Herodotus with that of Homer 
under the general name of Ionic. Now Homer has to a 
great extent uncontracted vowels, hence the superstition 
that the lonians were lovers of concurrent vowels. The con- 
fusion was doubtless helped by the fact that in many cases 
Ionic had two vowels where the Attic dialect had a single 
vowel or a diphthong; doneca), doiceo/Acv (where the x>oets 


shew that the two vowels were pronounced as a diphthong, 
and which should probably be written ^ Soicccd, doxco/icv), 
led to boKUii^ boKitiy for doieclr, doKci. The contracted 
forms are to be restored where the evidence of poets and 
inscriptions demands it. In some ways the evidence of 
the poets is the more valuable, as inscriptions shew how 
the words were written, the poets how they were pro- 
noimoed. In one respect their evidence is defective. A 
poet only shews how far contraction had proceeded in his 
own time ; it does not follow that a form uncontracted 
in the seventh or sixth centuries was uncontracted in the 

14. Within the life of the Qreek language concurrence 
of vowels resulted from the loss of 4 (y), o-, and A The two 
former disappeared at a very early period, /"survived much 
longer; hence the contraction of vowels that have come 
together through the loss of o- and §, is much more com- 
plete than where their concurrence is due to the loss of f. 
We shall consider first the instances where there is contact 
of similar vowels and diphthongs, next those where the 
vowels and diphthongs are dissimilar, taking in order con- 
tact of vowels arising from the loss of (1) t, (2) a, (3) /[ 

Like Vowels.

d^ovca Chios, J. J. 174, d^aveas Teos, 156 ; oXoo-xe/x'a by the

that o- not /* has been lost (Osthoff, Ferfecty 446). 

(6) B common Qreek 17/t. 

In suffixes -1710-, -17117, = Attic -cio-, -eta, c.^. dpian^iov, 
Upi^wvy fnrovb^iov (inscr.), aTpaTTjlri : /SacriXifcor, dovXifcos, 
'Odvo'cnjtor : dvdptjios, yvvaiitrjiog : avBp<»7n^i.os, ^oprno$. 

These formations were regularly developed by adding the 
suffix 'jp- to -17V- stems, e.g. ficuri\i^ios=*paa'i\i^fuoSy from stem 
fitLTikriv-: so perhaps popri/fios stem /3o/[»7-. From these -1710- was 
extended by analogy to other stems, e.g. yvyaiirfiioif stem yvyauK-. 
It is hard to say how long rfio was pronounced as a trisyllable. 
Anacr. has rpomfiiov: an inscription of Oropus circ. 400 has 
Upnfiov. As to Hdt., forms like oUcrfi&raTos seem to indicate 
thai 171 was pronounced as one syllable. 

Ab rfi remained in Ionic, forms like jSauriXh for paaiXrii must 
be due to analogy. There is no certain evidence to determine 
whether the pronunciation was paaiXh or paaikeT; Bechtel 
would write e?, referring to 'Apei Sem. Amorg. i. 13, but this 
stem in many cases follows the -«r- stems (Meyer Gr. p. 324), 
and thus proves nothing. 

Derivative feminines from masculines in -evf are in -eti7, not 
-17117: — Iepe/17, pcurCKeta.

In ^trav (ipf. of tlfu) rj is the augmented form of ci, con- 
sequently there is no justification for the ordinary spelling

In verbs in -ew, the poets shew that eo, cw, eou, cot were pro- 
nounced as one syllable (examples in BB, xi. 259), so that the 
more correct accentuation would probably be doxTofiey, SokcQ etc. 
In the opt. 01 represents the pronunciation of the fifth cen- 
tury, cot is an antiquated spelling : Hdt. has both. What was 

said of doKcta etc. applies also to pronominal forms like i/jJo, 

In adj. xpvffiv Mimn. 11, yrff>a\4oi Anacr. 43. In adj. of 
material the forms eo, cot, ol were kept in writing down to the 
latest times. 

(2) fcro, €(ra)=fo (later cv), tco, ywo, iytvto^ moSf 

In nouns, adjectives and adverbs eo, fca in the Iambic and 
Mehc poets count regularly as one syllable : in elegy, as might 
be expected, eo, ecu, are likewise found (examples in BB. xi. 265, 
Smyth Voc, 119). In the verb, eo scans sometimes eo some- 

times to, cf. the variation eu), cii, § 28. 

(3) €fo = to (later ev), veop, aariot, KXeo/i/Sporor. 

Note, In the fifth century the orthography eu is not found. 
From the middle of the fourth century it becomes very common, 
especially in the gen. of -eo-- stems, e,g, noo-t^dvevs, also *larpo- 
irXeus, Oi&Xtafcvs, 6ei;6o0'/i7, KXef/dwpos : further in verbs, i/rrovo- 
fieOvTos, reXeiTvrer. The Mss. of Hdt. exhibit both eo and the 
later ev. That in the fifth century eo and ev must have been 
pronounced very much alike, is shewn by the fact that eo ap- 
pears for ev, /3curtXc6r=/3a<rtXei^f, Chios 1. 1. 174 c, 10.

In the poets -cw, -ewv of the gen. appear as one syllable, also 
in other cases Ae(^iXos Arch., KVKcdiP Hippon. 

rjfo appears as to in frXcor, and in gen. of -rjv- stems, 
e.g, /SaortXcoff : 170*0 as -co in fi€fjiV€o=*fX€fxvri<ro, rfto is re- 
tained in i7a>ff (Attic ca>(). 

Merzdorf {Curt, Stud, 226 sqq.) laid down the law that 
170=00 became cw, 170=170, €o. That cannot be maintained ab- 

solately, as is evident from 'Apew Arch. 48, Up^w 1. 1, 128. Br*. 
§ 19 suggests that 170 became eo in accented syllables, e,g, xp^os, 
irXA)f=*xpi7>^Si *irXi7/bs. This would necessitate our writing 
X\€iast iiidxpeufj which have as much manuscript authority as 
the other. In compounds of irX/os, ^x^irXecin^ is given by ABC 
{ixlT\€ov Bsv), inr(nr\€us vn. 47 ABCsv ({nrdrXeos B). This 
favours Brugmann's rule. For xp^wfmi we should then expect 
XpdofMit but €(a would be regular, e.g. in yfie^fiedaj xP^^f^^^* 
ixpetifiriyf and may have spread from these. In Aeo-(cv-)rt;x^^^< 
(= Attic AeurrvxiSTii) eo is irregular. Br'. 19 suggests the in- 
fluence of compounds beginning with 6eo-, Neo- etc.

as in some other Oreek dialects, yipofiait ytPtaaKw, 

II. (a) #c=;( in dcKofuzi and ovkI. 

In BiKOfmi k is original {8iKo/jLai is also fonnd in Dorian, 
Lesbian and Arcadian) ; in d4xo/JuUf x is due to analogy, e.g. 
64$ofiai : d^ojucu=/3p^^w : fip^ta. oM and o^f are two different 
formations — oi)ici=oi)-iri(d), Skr. cid^ oirxl^oii-x^ Skr. hi. 

(6) 1. T=^B, avTis=av3is. 

Aurtt and aiuBit are probably different formations. 


In lonio 6 has been regularly kept, in Attic it has become <r 
by analogy. 

{d) In a few words the tenues and aspirates appear 
in the reverse order, #ccda>V (also inscr.), ivBavroy ivBtvrtv, 

KiOtav (xt-TUp) is said to be a Semitic word, Hebr. Jcetonet, 
It has been suggested that iydavra may have been influenced 
by iyddde. For similar instances cf. Meyer Gr^. § 206. 

47. Spiritus asper. Inscriptions prove that the 
louians of the Cyclades retained the rough breathing, 
while the lonians of the mainland had lost it. From the 
birthplace of Herodotus and the literary influence of 
Miletus it is a priori probable that he followed the Ionic of 
the mainland, and the fact that a flnal tenuis is not aspi- 
rated before words which in most Qreek dialects began with 
an aspirate (an oZ, air ijs, diraip€<a, Kara etc.) shews that he 
did so, and that such words are not to be pronounced with 
the rough breathing. The breathing has crept into the 
text under Attic influence, except in some words where the 
Ionic form w&s distinct from the Attic, as ^ds. In most 
compounds the aspirate has been lost after the analogy 
of the simple word, arrodos after odor, diraipta after cupiw. 
In certain old compounds it is retained, as in Ka6rffX€vov, 
Teos /. /. 156 b, KaBohov Halicarnassus, in Hdt. #cada>f, 
Bartpa, €<f>opos (a foreign technical term). 

48. V cf^cXicvcrriicov is commonly regarded as foreign 
to Herodotus. 

V i<f>€\KwrriKlv is frequently found in the poets. On Asiatic 
inscriptions of the sixth and fifth centuries it is omitted only 
once with elision (Fritsch 7), and it is also found before con- 
sonants. In the MBS. of Herodotus the v, though sometimes 
found (examples Bredow 103), is most frequently wanting, and 
is consistently omitted by most editors. In face of the evidence 
of the inscriptions this course can hardly be justified. It is far 
more likely that Herodotus introduced the r much more fre- 


qnently than it is found in the manuBcripts, and that it has 
been expelled owing to the imagined fondness of the lonians 
for concurrent vowels. 

The dual has disappeared.

dii7«coo-icdv (§ 32 note). The article has tm^ not rco>v, con- 
traction having made more progress in a word with a 
feeble accent. 

(6) The Dat. pL ends in -170*1, yvvfirjcri, btofrorjjcriy

The older form of the suffix was -dai, -170-1 (Skr. atu^ Br. VG., 


II. 2, § 356) : t was introdaced before a from the «>o- stems, 
\&yoiai., Attio -atf is a new formation after -ots. 

50. -o- stems. 

(1) The Dat. pi. ends in -otcrt, Xoyoicri, xo^'c^oMTi. 
-oc(ri represents an Idg. locative, cf. Bkr. -««Au ; -on an in- 

stmmental, Skr. -aU, 

(2) -co-, -oo- remain uncontracted, xp^^^^^y v6os^

and in proper names as McvcXccar, but vrjosj jcoXor, Xayor, 
and in compoimds of y^, fiaBvyatos, fucroyatos (§§ l^ 3o?, 38). 
The Attic declension arises from the metathesis of -i;o- 
except in KoXur, Xayais (Ionic koXosj \ay6s)y for which cf.

The €i declension (-ts, -ews) and the t declension (-ii, -lor) 
have here fallen together. Traces of the -et- declension are 
found on Ionic inscriptions, T^Xeas J. I. 32 (Amorgos), r6Xcws 
174 (Chios), Anacr. 72, t6X6( 1. 1. 240 (Halicamassus).

cf. Arch. 63, Sem. 7. 10. 

Proper names in -ir in Hdt. as in Eastern Ionic have gen.

The declension of this word in the Greek dialects starts

Ionic and Attic would come fieLs, prjyds, Attic pi/ip comes from 
the oblique oases.

(1) In the 2 pen. pron. <r has arisen regularly in 
forms which began with rf, e,g. tr^^rFt (preserved in a 
gloss of Hesych.). 

(2) In the third pers. pron. also fiuf^^avrotf, atVijy, 
sometimes avro, <r<tii=^avTolsy axfifa — avTcu 

Note, ff^i is (generally indirect) reflezive: (r<fK=avToU: 
c^4af, <r^>k9v are either demonstratiye or reflexive. As indirect 
reflexives Hdt. uses also o2, [uv^ cr^t, aMs, ct Ekedahl, de um 
pron. pers, et reflex, apud Her. 

(3) Befiexive, c/A€Q»vrov, cfifa>vrcp, (rcoovrov, iwrov, 
see § 39. 4. 

The Ionic declension starts from the gen., e.g. ifAe<avTw=ifUo 
ai}roO (perhaps also dat. ifieuvrf = iftoi ai}r^), whence ta has made 
its way into the aco. Attic starts from the ace. ifxi ai^rdy, etc. 

61. Demonstrative Pronouns. 
Beside €K€Ufos Ionic has the shorter mIvos. 

62. Belative. 

1. Off. The relative in the oblique cases and in nom. 
aoc neut. sing, and pi. assumes the forms of the article, 
OS fj TOy Tov niv roy ol at ra, etc. 

After prepositions 

(a) when the final letter of the preposition does not 
admit of elision — cV, «{ , eV, irposy avv (npo and vnip are not 
found with rel., n€pi always after it, rov wtpi) — consonantal 
forms of the relative are used — cV r^, «« rot;, n-por roco-t, 
etc., — except in the temporal expressions iv ^, is o, axpi ov, 
fiexpi ovy e^ ov. 

(b) when the preposition admits of elision — ain-i, 
dvof dio, iiri, leara, ficra, irapa, vrro (ofi^t and dpa are not 
found before the relative) — vocalic forms of the relative are 
used — ojT* «v, air ov, di ^r, vap* f (but ry iropa) etc. 

2. wrris never has initial r. Following ris it has in 
gen. and dat. of all genders orco (c v), orco>, oriouri and in 
neut. pL aaaa (=*a-r4-a). 



63. Intebbogative and Indefinite. 

r/ff has in gen. and dat. reo (rci;)| rit^^ rttovf reoKrc. 
Similarly the enclitic rlr. 


64. (1) dvo is declined as a plural, dvouf (also dvo), 

(2) dvflaScKa is found for dci>d«ica. 

Sj^u and do; go back to different forms *Svfuf and *d/ta (cf. 
Lat. duo=*duiio, and bi8=*dvi8). 

(3) In T€(ra-«p€arKai^€Ka, rivtrtptt is undeclined, e.<;r. 
erea Tta-artpto-Kaid^Ka. The ordinal is Tta-a-tp^trKaijbiKaTOi, 


Co. Augment and Reduplication, 

(1) The temporal augment is as in Attic except 
that iterative forms, e.g. Xo^ctm^ take no augment : xp^ 
has XP^^^ ^vXofjuu and ^cXXa, tfiovkopijv and c/xcXXov, 
bvvapAi generally ibwapj^v ; Kraofuu has ticnjfjLCLu 

(2) The syllabic augment and reduplication is 
often neglected. 

(a) It is constantly neglected in dytyca>, ae^Xea, oXvx- 
ra^o> (aXvicra^ov once), ap<ay€y apcuaifAooij app<od€o>, MPOViOy 
and in verbs beginning with at— in ceS, cfo/wu, c^cXojcaxctt, 
cXiia/a), €pya(op£iij tpytOy tpboiy €(rBrffi€V0Sy itrcoco, mpoui^a), 
€TOiiM(o>y and in verbs beginning with the dipthongs ci, 
fi7 — in odoiTTopctt, 6pTd{<ay o<f>€Xov (?), and in verbs in oi (but 

(6) Some verbs want the augment or reduplication 
only in certain forms, e.g, dytiPiCofuuy perf. ay»vibar(u : dv- 
dpairodiCoy dpbpiaroSio-fuvovs : apx^y vnapyfUvoSy etc. Many 
verbs vary so much that no rules can be laid down for 
them, see Bredow, 285—319. 

(c) Isolated forms. op€<a has Jpflav, t<A6a=^€ii»Ba (§ 3. 
XL e) : iopya : lj\»Vy fj\»Ka (dKi<rKop£u) : fjpbavovy ciada {aMaw)i 


dpaipijfuu {aip4a>), oIk€ (— coiiec) wants reduplication like 

To what extent the augment was dropped in Ionic is 
uncertain for want of inscriptional evidence. €pya{6firjp is 
confirmed by inscr. In verbs beginning with a diphthong 
such as atjpco), cvdo), the Herodotean aipcov, «vdovj might 
regularly represent aip€OP, rivdov (Br^. § 109). In other 
cases there is no apparent reason for the absence of the 

Personal endings a'iid Tense and Mood Formation, 

66. In many cases in personal endings vowels, which 
in Attic are contracted, are found written separately, 
though often pronounced as dipththongs. 

(1) -ao in 2 sg. 1 aor. ind. mid., tpycurao (§ 28. 2). 

(2) -to, in the pluperfect active, €<oB«a, icoBeas 
(§ 31. 2), but ctt^ci (§ 16. 2). 

(3) -eat in 2 Sg. pres. and fut. ind. mid. oix^m, 
\eytaij dfi€i'^tai (§ 32. 2). 

(4) '(o (ev) in 2 sg. ipf. ind., pres. ipv., 2 aor. indie, 
and ipv. mid., eXt/co, Xvfo, eyeVeo, y€P€o (§ 37. 2), fi€fiv€o 
(§ 38). 

(5) -CO) in liq. fut. and in 1 and 2 aor. conj. pass, and 
conj. of aorists active which follow the -fii conjugation. 
OTfiiavia^ aiptOeaf aipfBioifiev, aTTieoxrt, e^avaoTidfiev, rrpofT- 

The last-mentioned arose from ffr-ti-ofiev^ d^-w, jSi^-w (§ 38) 
which are found in Homer, partly with ct, dciia etc. 

67. The endings -arcu, -aro, for -in-cu, -vro are found 
in the perf. and plup. pass., in the pres. and ipf. pass, of 
verbs in -fit, and in the optative middle. aTroMexarcu, 
Ktx<»plbarMy tTfTaxoTOy dtrUaro, €fi€pv€aTOy riytaraiy opiMfarai, 
TTcptc^c/SXcaro : Kearai, €K(aTo, KaTtaraij KariaTo'. dnmriaraif 
dtrayurriaTOy TrporidiaTO^ iKhiboarai : yivoiaro, ytvoiaro. 


After a consonant (including consonantal i^ and /), n had 
to take upon itself the part of a Towel, and this vocalic n in 
Greek hecame a (G. § 137). Thus arose regnlarlj e,g. dxoded^- 
Xorcu = *dTo5€5^Xff'''«'» i'cAiToi=*iC€J[-WTeu, foTeu=*^<r-prai, idpi^a- 
TOi =*i8/)iJ/^wreu, ytpolaro =*y€voi'^To (for *7€i'6aTO with i xestoxed 
from the other persons). From consonant stems the ending 
-arac was extended to vowel stems,/36/3X:7-aTai, /ue/Mn^-arcu, whence 
/3e/3X^ra(, /itfufiarcu (§ 84), but the usual forms are also found. 
It was further transferred to the pres. and ipf. mid. of -lu 
verbs, the transference being helped by the existence of the 
presents ^arat, xiarout ipf. ^aro, ixiaTo. 

68. In the ipf. and aor. Hdt. often has iterative forms 
in '(TKov, as tcKoVy bia^BtipftrKov, ^tvyto'Kov^ Xafitaxov 
{6v€(TK( Hippon. 37). These forms never have the augment 
(§ 65. 1). 

69. Subjimctive. 

Subjunctives of the 1 aor. with the original short thematic 
vowel are found on inscrr. of certain parts (Chios, Teos, 
Ephesus) and in the Elegiac poets, e.g. TapafjLei}//€rcu Mimn., 
where however they may be due to Epic influence, xoci^w/uiu 
(Hippon. 43) shews that they were not universal throughout 
Ionia, and mss. of Hdt. give the longer form. 

70. Optative. 

1. Optatives in -rjv like ctiyi/, Boirjv have in the plur. 
both longer and shorter forms, cci;/acv, doirjr€y etrjaavy oi/XXcx* 

It may be that the longer forms have been introduced by 
transcribers, as has often happened in Attic writers. 

2. Optatives of verbs in -ao have in the sing. -^1;^, in 
the plur '(^fi€Vy 'a€Py B.g, oimj^rji vik&€v. Verbs in -ctt> follow 
the thematic conjugation, fAovvofiaxtoifiiy iroioifUy itaXcoi, 
KoXeocrv, except VL 36, where ABC have iroioifj. An inscr. 
of Teos /. /. 156 a gives both iroioi and aymOfoirj, Of -oca 
verbs I have found no examples. 

3. The optative of the 1 aor. act. has the endings -rcavi 
-ci€(y), -cioy, not -oicf, -cue, -aicv. 


This 18 regular in the poets and on inseriptionB, and 
nearly so in the msb. of Hdt. The few instances in which the 
MSB. give -cuey must accordingly be corrected. 

71. Imperative. 

In the third person plur. in Hdt., as in x)oets and inscrr., 
the short forms aire found, -oyro), -dyrai, '4<r$wv, 

iaruffoof z. 147 forms an exception. Probably it should be 
changed to i<map as on inscrr. 1. 1. 13, 174. 

Verbs in -aoD) -€», -oa>. 

72. Verbs in -ao>. 
These contract as in Attic. 

Note a. Side by side with forms in w, are found forms in 
-€(tf, -60-, asdp^, bpiavrcty bpiofup (the instances aregiven, Curtitu 
Studien yn. 190 — 200). They are most common in the verbs 
ipop, elpttfTWf 4>oiTa». To what extent they should be retained 
is doubtful, as is also the explanation of them. From the purely 
Ionic standpoint, the starting-point of the formation might be 
found in forms in -aw, Homeric fievoivaxa^ hiyj^ia : -dw would 
become in Ionic -i/w, -ew. But the change is also found in 
dialects where this explanation is inadmissible (Schmidt, Die 
Plurdlhildungen der Idg. Neutra, 827 — 384). Schmidt would 
connect the phenomenon with the appearance of e in -ao-- stems 
{yipa's, yipeos) and supposes that a became « regularly before o. 
In the absence of inscriptional evidence it is safer to write w, 
as has been done except in the case of the three verbs mentioned 

h. In xp^f'^^=^*XP^'iPf^*- (§ ^^ Attic xp^/'^) endings 
beginning with e, 17, are joined on to a shorter stem x/»-) 
Xparcu. (=:*xp(iiera£), xP^^'^ac, etc. An infin. x/>^^cu is found 
on inscr. of Ceos, 1. 1. 43. 

73. Verbs in -co. 

1. Where c comes in contact with o and o>, the vowels 
remain but are pronounced as one syllable, -««, 'to (later 
cv), irotcoot KoXcoficv. In the opt. -coi and ^ol are found, 
the latter representing the pronunciation (§ 37. 7). 


2. Where c comes in contact with c or i; the vowels 
contract as in Attic, doitct, hoiqi^ dirjrcu (§ 16. 1). 

"74. Verbs in -o». 

These contract as in Attic. 

Verbs in -fit 

have to a larger extent than in Attic passed into the the- 
matic conjugation. 

75. Verbs in -^/xt, = -a^ii, LorrjfUy KipvrjfJLt, 

(1) Pres. ind. 3 sg. Urra (beside tarijo'i), Kipva, as 
though from '^toracD, ^Kipvcua. 3 pi. iarao-t, 

(2) Ipf. 3 Sg. lara, as well as i<m]. 

(3) Perf. part, is cVreoip (§ 38). 

76» Verbs in -fjfUj^^-rffjLiy riBrffjLij Irffiij TTiTrXfifit, 

1. Pres. ind. 3 sg. regularly as though from verb in ca>, 
TiStl, as usually in poets (Mimn. 1. 6, 5. 7), once W^o-i 
IV. 73 (as Semon. Amorg. 1. 2), dTntl vi. 62 (awirjo-i ABC), 
ifimfinXfl VII. 39 (but in the other parts n-t/in-Xoo-i, mfi- 
vXdpoij etc. like tcmy/ii, ablaut rj : a). From the corre- 
sponding verb irlfiTrprjiJLi AB vui. 109 have a part, rrifiirptisf 
which may be right. 

2. Impf. ind. sg. 1 eriBta (once), 3 cri^e* (twice), cr/^et 
once, the correct form, Ui, irlBta, whether due to Hdt. or 
his correctors, is formed on the analogy of the pluperfect. 

Note. While in the pres. the hss. regularly accent rc^et, 
they have for the most part Ul, where analogy demands Ui. 

3. Subj. Ti6»fJLaif TTpOTLdoifAtBa : wifiTrkrjrcUy VII. 37 : uffu, 
dmjfy €V(i7, but diricoxrc. 

These examples represent two different modes of formation, 
one that of -w verbs, the other that of the non-thematic 2 aor. 
(§ 66. 5). It is impossible to say which Hdt. used, but if he 
wrote dxc^tM'i, it is probable that he wrote 2^, or if t^g that he 
wrote haffi. From verbs in -dfu in iv. 99 ABC have dvpew/«€da, 


and Terbs in -^lu, have ZiMa^ MCiai, bnt mwrai. There is the 
same doubt in Attic whether we should write rlOvfAoi or n6Ca/uu. 

For Bubj. of 2 aor. see § 66. 5. 

4. Optative. Pres. vmriBovroy ni. 41 : aor. viro^cocro, 
irpocBioiTOy but TTpoBflro ILL 48, which should probably be 
corrected to trpoBfoiro, 

5. From dvifjfu comes a peculiar perfect 3 pL dycWac, 
from fieririfu perf. part. fitfieTifiipos (but furtia-Bu) with re- 
duplication of the preposition. 

77. Verbs in -«fu. 

(1) Pres. 2 didoiff, 3 dtdol as poets and inscriptions, 
but dc5o><ri II. 2 (didoi Bsv), 154, vni. 24 as Arch. 16, didovau 

(2) Ipf. 1 Mbovpy 3 mdov. 

(3) Ipv. 2 sg. dldov. 

78. Verb in -v/u. 

(1) As in Attic, but 3 pL pres. ind. -vai, itucvvai, 

(2) Besides in the subj. and opt. where the change 
to the -M conjugation is regular also in Attic, in the pres. 
ind. and part, and in the ipf. ind. act. Hdt. uses forms of the 
-M conjugation side by side with those of the -fu conjuga- 
tion, e.g, vrpooxnroXXvfiff, irpodctxyvci, ofun;ov<ri, mjyvvnvo'iy 
c^iicvuc, circ^evyyvov, ^cvyyutty, b€iKvvovT€s. The regular 
forms are the more common. 

The same transference is also found in poets and inscrip- 
tions. The transition in Attic began later (Meisterhans 153). 

Note. Urraffiy nBeiffi, didovin, deucyCcrt, arise from iora-m, 
rtSe-vri, dido-PTit d€ucyv-irn. As there is no contraction here, 
the natural accentuation would be tarcun, rLdeuri, dldowrii 
delicpvai,. which should perhaps be restored, cf. £r^. § 115. 

79. €lfiL 

1. Pres. ind. 2 sg. €is (on the analogy of <l>€p€is\ 1 pi.

80. ci/ii. 

Ipf- iJa, ^€ (^€4 ?), ja-op. 

As ]; is here the augmented form of a it is absurd to 
-write it as if 17 and c formed two syllables, cf. § 86. For ^a, 
Tjiffcuf in Homer should probably be restored jta, jeo-or like 
xf5ea, jf^ecror, £r^. § 137^. je, which is also Homeric, is a trans- 
ference to the thematic conjugation, ^c, which is often found 
in the mss., is shewn to be Ionic by Arch. 89 ; fffapj Arch. 82. 

81. owa, 

1. Pres. o2^ oibasy ot^c, tdfup (four times oidofj^v), tore,

3. Opt tld€Ujv. 

4. Ipf. SBta (sfdij, Theog. 66T), jfdc* (mbs. mostly jfacf),

The diphthong ci is in the MSS. often wrongly dis- 
tracted to cc, Kitrai, ictta-Bai : cyiecifiai, Arch. 84, xciroi, Arch. 
69, Sem. Amorg. 7. 4. 


83. Points in which the syntax of Hdt differs from

These fall into two families ABC and Rsv; P goes 
sometimes with the one, sometimes with the other. The 
best representatives of the first family are A and B, of the 
second, R (in which Book V is wanting) and v. The rela- 
tive value of the two families has been a subject of much 
discussion, and the question can hardly be regarded as 
finally decided. Most scholars are inclined to follow rather 
the A family, while others, such as Cobet and Qomperz, 
hold that the Mss. of the R family, though, as is natural 
from their later date, much corrupted in many ways, repre- 
sent the better text. It cannot be disputed that in many 
cases this family alone has preserved the true reading, and 
it is to be noted that sometimes the reading of this family 
agrees with the testimony of ancient writers: in such 
cases scholars who despise the authority of this group are 
driven to the very improbable supposition that the reading 
is due to the correction of some learned man. In the 


present state of the question it is impossible to assign an 
unconditional superiority to either class, so that it alone 
should be used in the constitution of the text.

capital of Susiana or Elam, and the chief residence of the 
Persian kings. It was situated in the plain on the E. bank of 
the Choaspes (Kerkha), between that river and the Seifu, a 
tributary of the Pasitigris. The site of the city is still marked 
by ruins, there being three main mounds, one of which ban 
been identified with the Memnonium, the strong citadel which 
contained the treasures of the Persian kings, another with the 
palace begun by Darius I.

where (i. 170, V. 106) and others, Sardinia was the largest of 
the islands in the Mediterranean; others, however, assigned 
this position to Sicily. Modern authorities likewise disagree. 
The island seems to have taken a strong hold on the Greek 
imagination. We are told (Pausan. rv. 43. 5) that at the time 
of the Messenian wars the Messenians were advised to leave 
their country and occupy Sardinia. The same advice was 
given to the lonians by Bias of Priene, when they were being 
conquered by Harpagus, general of Cyrus (Hdi. i. 170). The 
conquest of it is held out as a bait to Darius (Hdt. v. 106). 
Aristophanes, alluding to Athenian dreams of an empire in 
the West, speaks of the juryman as woXeuv apx^av irKiUmanf 
6,ir6 rod U^yrov fjUxpt 2>apdovs (Arist. Vesp. 700). Apart from its 
natural advantages, Sardinia was of importance as lying in 
the middle of the trade routes of the Western Mediterranean. 
It was at a very early period visited by the Phoenicians on 
their way westward, who founded settlements especially on 
the S. and W. coasts, such as Caralis, Nora, Solci, Tharrus. 
Archffiological discoveries furnish evidence of the early trade

between Phoenicia and Sardinia ; among the Phoenician im- 
portations were especially products of an Bgyptian character. 
By the beginning of the fifth century the island had passed 
into the hands of the Carthaginians.

Kol 81} — yap, and since, yap is frequently thus found in Hdt. 
after xal {kolL — ydp, xal oi yap) in a causal sense, giving a reason 
for the statement which follows in the main clause. Instances 
in this book are to be found in cc. 11, 61, 76, 87, 88, 102, 118. 

6] NOTES. 99 

The frequent use of ybip is one of the characteristics of Hdt.'s 
style; instances of the nsoal causal particles, such as hrel, 
iveidifl, are very few. 

8. imtpdro Karuav. In Hdt. wetpciffOai is generally found

Hjv yijv. A brisk trade was carried on with the countries 
about the Black Sea by the lonians, and particularly by the 
Milesians, whose colonies dotted its shores. The Crimea and 
South Russia supplied boundless supplies of com. On the 
east coast the Colchians furnished excellent flax, and on the 
south the land of the Chalybes was rich in iron. Besides, 
there came unlimited supplies of timber from the forests, the 
sea supplied fish, and the flocks and herds wool and hides. In 
return the Greeks exported their native products, particularly 
earthenware, also wine and oil. As this trade was to a large 
extent in Milesian hands, these measures of Histiaeus were 
doubtless intended to bring the rebellious Milesians to their 

19. ooioi, referring to the crews. 


8. ^o£vuccs )Uv ijouv n'poOii|MraToi. This zeal on the 
part of the Phoenicians is explained by their jealousy and 
hatred of the Ionian marine by which they had been to a great 
extent ousted from the trade that had formerly been theirs.

2. liTTpdrtuov. It is impossible to say here with certainty 
whether Hdt. wrote iarparei^yTo or iffrpdrevop^ as he uses both 
voices, but the middle more frequently. On the whole the 
probabilities are in favour of the less common active, since it 
would be more likely to be tampered with.

Eight of the twelve Ionic states, Miletus, Myus, Priene, 
Samos, Teos, Chios, Erythrae, Phocaea, are here represented; 
the remaining four, Ephesus, Colophon, Lebedus, Clazomenae, 
are unrepresented. Clazomenae had already been reduced (v. 
123). Busolt (Or. Gesch. ii. 40) suggests that the three other 
towns held aloof from the revolt.

of Sybaris and Posidonia, and on the older coins of Laus is 
found a bull with human countenance ; this indicates that the 
rich pastures were a main source of the wealth of Sybaris. 
Sybaris was destroyed b.c. 510 (cf. v. 44), and in commemora-

the starting-point of the overland route to Etruria. The Mile- 
sians could not sail through the straits as they were in the 
hands of the Chalcidians, with whose enemies the Eretrians, 
Miletus was in alliance ; besides, the jealous Etruscans would 
not have welcomed the presence of Greek vessels in their 
waters. Consequently the Etruscan merchants came to buy 
the Milesian wares at Sybaris, from which they transported 
them overland to the Tyrrhene sea, and then home in 
Etruscan vessels (Busolt ii. 256, Lenormant La Grande Grece,

tradition they were driven by the Oscans and Oenotrians out 
of Southern Italy over the straits to Sicily, where they got 
the upper hand of the ^iKOMoiy and gradually confined them 
to the S. W. and S. of the island. The scanty remains of their 
language would seem to indicate that they belonged to the 
Italian stock : it has been suggested with probability that the 
Sicilian Greek words for hare and key {Xixoptv, koltlvov) were 
borrowed from the Sicels, and gela is said to have meant rime 
in Sicel and in Oscan (Busolt, Gr. Geseh. i. 237).

(about 505 b.c.) by Gleandrus, son of Pantares, who established 
himself as despot. On his death (about 498) he was succeeded 
by his brother Hippocrates. Hippocrates carried on a series 
of successful wars in Sicily, reducing to subjection, among 
other places, the towns of Callipolis, Naxos, Zancle and Leon- 
tin! (Hdt. vn. 154). Zancle, as we see, he governed through

Delphi. Cortins {quoted by Bahr), however, supposes that they 
went by Tanagra into the Attic Tetrapolis, and thence diverged 
to Athens. The difficulty of the former explanation lies in 
ixTpdrotrrai, If the envoys went by the sacred road all the way 
to Athens, how could they be said to turn cuide to Athens f 
iicTpaT4<r0ou implies that they left that road. Herwerden cuts 
the knot by reading rpairwnai^ but, in view of the obscurity of 
the passage, and the possibility of other interpretations, it is 
hardly safe to alter the text. Taking the text as it stands, it 
can only mean that the envoys set out by the sacred way lead- 
ing eastward from Delphi, and at some point diverged from 
it, but where, or by what route they reached Athens, there is 
no evidence to show. It is possible, for instance, that they 
might have gone from Thebes to Athens by way of Phyle, the 
shortest route between Thebes and Athens. Delphi was the 
centre of Greek road-building. Boads were necessary to enable 
the pilgrims on foot and in chariots to reach in safety the 
temple of the god. "So arose the * sacred ways ' by which the 
gods themselves were said to have travelled, even as Apollo 
once came through a pathless land to Delphi. He was fol- 
lowed by his servants, particularly the Athenians, *the road- 
building sons of Hephaestus' (Aesch. Eum, 13). The art of 
making roads and bridges, which rendered harmless the wild 
mountain streams, thus proceeded from the national sanc- 
tuaries, particularly from that of Apollo.*' In these roads 
were cut grooves for the chariot wheels to run in; hence to 
permit of free intercourse with the different sanctuaries, the 
width between the grooves had to be the same, and so far as 
Delphic influence reached, both in Central Greece and in the 
Peloponnese, the same width of track is found.

question then is whether ol iirayay6fuyoi is here to be taken 
of the Dolonci generally who elected him despot over them- 
selves, or of the deputation who on their return set him up 
as despot of the country. As the latter is the more natural 
interpretation, I have adopted the active. With regard to the 
despotism of Miltiades and his successors in the Chersonese, it 
has been suggested with great probability that it was estab- 
lished and supported by Pisistratus and his sons in accordance 
with their policy of founding an Athenian empire.

vi«M-rl IXi|Xv6ci. The course of events seems to have been 
somewhat as follows. About b.c. 515 Miltiades came to the 
Chersonese. At the outset he either met with or feared op- 
position from the oligarchs in the cities there, whom, conse- 
quently, he seized and imprisoned (c. 39. 15 ; ruly Kar€x6in-(a» 
c. 40. 4 refers to these difficulties). Three years after his 
arrival (b.c. 412) he fell into still greater troubles (xaXexcin-e/Hx 
tTfrfiyfULTa /. 4) — the Scythians, provoked by the invasion of 
Darius (b.c. 513) overran the Chersonese, and Miltiades re- 
tired before them. On the withdrawal of the Scythians he 
was again restored by the Dolonci. This (raGra c. 41. 1 refers 
to the withdrawal of the Scythians and the restoration of Mil- 
tiades) took place three years before he fied from before the 

40] NOTES. 133 

PhoenieianB, t.«. in 496 b.c. The reason given by Herodotus 
for the retirement of Miltiades from the Chersonese is the 
Scythian invasion. As Grote (iii. 200 note) points oat, it 
would have been difficult for Miltiades, after he had shewn 
himself the enemy of the King by advising the Greeks to break 
down the bridge over the Danube (Hdt. iv. 137), to remain in 
the Chersonese when the Persians were complete masters in 
these regions and their commander Otanes was engaged in 
reducing the Greek cities (Hdt. v. 26sqq.). Probably then 
Herodotus was mistaken in assigning the invasion of the 
Scythians as the real reason for the retirement of Miltiades, 
though there is no reason to deny the invasion itself. The 
date of his return to the Chersonese agrees well with this 
hypothesis. In b.c. 496 the Persians were fully occupied in 
quelling the Ionic revolt, so that Miltiades had nothing to fear 
from them. Where Miltiades spent the intervening years we 
are not told. Stein takes a different view of the passage. He 
refers rfab^ Karexoprtav 7rfyriyfiA.Tiap to the expulsion of Miltiades 
by the Scythians, and xaXcirc^epa to his withdrawal before the 
Phoenicians. Then he inserts irpit in I. 6 before tovtwv, sup- 
posing that the Scythian invasion took place (b.c. 496) ''three 
years before these things" i,e. before the arrival of the Phoe- 
nicians (B.C. 493). In c. 41, accordingly, he would understand 
ravra of the Scythian invasion. Grammatically there is no- 
thing to urge against this interpretation except that it requires 
the insertion of vpo ; historically it is open to grave objections. 
It is impossible to see how Miltiades could have maintained 
himself in the Chersonese, in the face of the hostility of the 
Persians. Again, the Scythian invasion is intelligible in 512, 
but not in 496, when, so far as we know, the Scythians had 
received no fresh provocation from the Persians.

region abounded in metals. Gold and silver were fonnd not 
only about Mt. Pangaeom but also in the mountain ranges 
which enclose the plains of the Zjgactes and Angites in the W.

after him Philippi, were the most productive. When the 
Thasians were reduced by the Athenians b.c. 464/3, their

The island was colonized by lonians from Paros in the first

the Greeks learned the art of mining. Heracles often appears 
on coins of Thasos ; he is identical with the Phoenician god 
Melqart. Mr Tozer on his visit to Thasos could see no traces 
of ancient workings (Islands of the Aegean, p. 307).

of both houses, who were then transformed into twin brothers 
to explain the double kingship and at the same time to trace 
the pedigree of the two families back to Heracles and Zeus....

the Attic has been deduced from the comparison of a passage 
in Plutarch {Lycurg. 12), where it is stated that each Spartiate 
contributed every month a medimnus of barley to the common 
meals, with a statement of Dicaearchus {ap. Athen, iv. p. 141 c) 
that the contribution amounted to a medimnus and a half, 
Attic measure. This corresponds closely to the ratio between 
the Aeginetan and the Attic system of weights (142: 100), 
Hultsch, Metrologie 500. This was to be expected as the 
Aeginetan system prevailed in the Pelopounese, cf. on c. 
127. 14.

suppose that the care of the public ways fell to the Kings in 
their military capacity. Since, however, the reference is only 
to disputes about them, Herman thinks that the object was to 
distinguish public from private property, and to maintain 
intact the boundaries of places set apart for common use. 

OcTov, adopted, in Attic usually troirp^s, as in Ionic ndiwai 
often corresponds to Attic xoietv. *'£oth these duties (the 
disposal of heiresses and adoption) regarded the maintenance 
of families the basis of the ancient Greek states, the care for 
which was therefore entrusted to the kings. Thus, in Athens 
also, the same duty had been transferred from the ancient 
kings to the archon Eponymus, who accordingly had the 
superintendence and a species of guardianship over all heiresses 
and orphans," Miiller, Dorians, ii. 107, Eng. Tr.

the two kings gaye the two Totes, and that the plural is nsed 
beoanse they differed at different times: Abicht's exphination is 
similar. But, to say nothing of the fact that one of the kings 
might be present, the other not, it is, to say the least, ex- 
ceedingly improbable that the same elder should have been 
fulXitfra vpoiHiKvw to both the kings. Herodotus expresses him- 
self loosely, but the meaning surely must be that each king in 
his absence was represented by the member of the yepowrla 
most closely related to him, who then had two votes, one for 
the king and one for himself.

naturally be proclaimed victor; irpoff^^aXt might mean, as 
Stein supposes, that he transferred the victory to the state, so 
that the state was proclaimed victor, cf. c. 103. 9. Unless, 
however, it could be shewn that some other of the Spartan 
Kings before the time of Herodotus gained a similar victory, 
the words need mean no more than that Demaretus brought 
the state the honour of an Olympic victory. According to 
Pausan. (vi. 2. 1) the Lacedaemonians after the Persian invasion 
devoted themselves keenly to the breeding of horses. 

160 HERODOTUS, VI. [70— 

Herodotus here and elsewhere shews himself particularly 
well informed about this Demaretus. In yuz. 65 he relates an 
anecdote in which Demaretus is concerned on the authority 
of Dicaeus son of Theocedes, an Athenian exile in the Persian 
army. Trautwein, Hermes xxv. 535 sqq., tries to shew that 
Herodotus derived his information about Demaretus firom 
memoirs of his friend Dicaeus.

falls perpendicularly down ; the snowy water tumbles down 
over it in two branches to unite itself through a labyrinth of 
boulders with the stream below. It is impossible to imagine a 
more gloomy region ; all life is dead among the sharp pointed 
stones, over which one cannot without danger scramble to the 
fall, and the wanderer shudders amid the fearful desolation. An 
extraordinary impression has been produced on all generations 
of men by this place, through its wildness and the rare 
appearance in Greece of a high waterfall, and» while now 
owing to the colour of the stones so far as they are sprinkled 
by the water it is called the Black-water (Mavron^ri), it was 
among the Hellenes, as the water of Styx, the subject of old 
and widespread legends." The water of the Styx is still

{Apophth. Lac, Cleom. 2) Cleomenes concluded a seven days' 
truce with the Argives and then fell upon them treacherously 
by night. This probably represents an Argive tradition, 
Busolt, II. 49, n. The whole of this story is hopelessly mixed 
with fable. Some accounts put the battle on the seventh day 
of the month (Arist. Pol, viii. (v.), 2. 3. (8) iv 'Apyci ruv 
ip ry ipd6fixi dvciXofUvutp virb KXeofUpovs) connecting it, ap- 
parently on account of the part which the women are said 
to have played (see below c. 82), with the Argive festival 
Hybristica (on the seventh day of the Hermaeus the fourth 
month in Argos) in which the women appeared with chiton and 
chlamys, the men with peplos and veil. This would explain 
the predominance of the number 7 (7777 Argives were said to 
have perished), Busolt, n. 50, note.

"Attio writers say tw or ravra roieiy without the article" 
(Eriiger). The chronology is here not qoite certain. Some, as 
Dnncker and Grote, place the outbreak of the war after the 
battle of Marathon, about 488 — 487. Curtius and others put it 
before Marathon, and assume that it was interrupted by the 
approach of the Persians. For the literature on the subject see 
Busolt II. 62 note, who would put the outbreak of the war in 
the spring of 490, considering that it might quite well have 
been fought out in the first half of that year. Hdt. (vi. 94) 
evidently looked upon it as coincident with the Persian pre-

that Hdt. was acquainted with one and Thuc. with the other. 
It is easier to suppose with Weoklein that the earthquake

the priests connected it with them, while afterwards, when the 
Peloponnesian war came, it was attached to it.

in the gloss the following may be noted. Aapetos, Pers. Ddraya- 
vau8h=Ddrayad-vahU', possessing wealth, from the participle of

good, n. vohu, property. S^p^s, Pers. Kshaydrshan-^Kshay-

usual procedure in such a case : — part of the land was conse- 
crated to a god, part of it leased out by the state, and the 
remaining part divided up and apportioned by lot among the 
citizens who applied. The first known instance of this is that 
of Salamis Hrc, b.c. 570 ; under the Athenian empire it became 

' common. Such KXrfpovx^ai served a double purpose ; they pro- 
vided for some of the poorer citizens, and at the same time, 
like the Boman coloniae, they were Athenian garrisons, sup- 
porters of the Athenian Empire in the territory of the allies.

The exact force of this law it is impossible to determine. 
Hdt. does not say whether it held good for all the months. 
Plut. l,c. objects that the Lacedaemonians often enough under- 
took expeditions in the first half of the month; but Hdt.'s 
words only mean from the 9th to the 16th. Gurtius and 
Duncker assume after Boeckh that the tidings came on the 
ninth of the Doric month Gameus, from the 7th to the 15th 
of which the festival of the Garnea was celebrated, during 
which the Dorians abstained from arms, vii. 206, Thuc. v. 54, 
75. Busolt points out against this that in vn. 206 Hdt. ex- 
pressly mentions the Garnea, and that the fact that he does 
not mention it here is an indication that the Athenian mes- 
senger did not arrive during this festival. Be that as it may, 
there is no reason for supposing that this was a mere pretext 
for delay.

With regard to this account Busolt ii. 75 remarks, **if we 
may see in this statement of Herodotus about the council of 
war anything more than a mere dramatic dress (MtQler-Stru- 
berg, Jahr, /. class. Phil 119 (1879), 441), MUtiades, before he 
came forward in the council with a definite proposal, would 
have informed himself privately of the views of his colleagues,

8. iro\i|iApx<^v. In the Solonian constitution the voKi- 
fiapxos was the head of the army; also, as strangers and 
enemies were synonymous, he was entrusted with the protec- 
tion of the rights of aliens (Meyer and Sohomann, Der Attische 
Process i. 65). After the reforms of Cleisthenes the conmiand 
alternated, ten arparriyol were chosen annually one from each 
of the ten new tribes, and the Polemarchos, though he marched 
out of the city at the head of the army and enjoyed certain 
honorary rights, such as the position at the extremity of the 
right wing in battle (see below c. 111. 6), was no longer 
commander-in-chief, but was attached to the council of the 
generals in which he had a vote and probably the presidency 
(cf. Appendix II). This is the last occasion on which he is 
found in the field; hereafter he appears as a purely civil 
magistrate: only the sacrifice offered by him to Artemis 
Agrotera and Enyalios, and his superintendence of the ^i- 
TdL4HOs dyujy are survivals of his original military authority.

representative of the ancient king (Eur. Supp, 657). 

6. fi»s ijfa6|jLiovTo. There are two ways of taking this. 
(1) The imperfect may stand, by assimilation to the tense 
of the main clause, for the present, as they are numbered, 
referring to the fixed official order of the tribes — ^Ereohtheis, 
Aegeis, Pandionis, Leontis, Acamantis, Oeneis, Cecropis, Hip- 
pothontis, Aeantis, Antiochis. (2) The imperiect may be 
taken literally, a^icording to their order at the ttme, the order 
of the tribes being determined by lot, as it was for many other 
purposes. In support of the former view it has been pointed 
out that, at the beginning of the Peloponnesian war, the names 
of the citizens who fell in battle were inscribed according to 
the fixed order of the tribes (C. I. A.i, 443, 446, 447), and as 
we are told (Pausan. i. 32. 3) that the names of those who fell 
in the battle of Marathon were inscribed on ffrijXai according to 
their tribes it has been concluded that they were arranged in 
their official order. But even granting that no change took place 
between 480 and 430 (and we know that changes did take place 
in the organisation of the army within that period, e,g. the com- 

Ill] NOTES. 191 

maud of the contingents of the tribes passed from the ffrparrrYol 
to the Ta^iapxot)j it does not of necessity follow that they fought 
in the same order. It is manifestly unfair that any one tribe 
should always occupy the post of honour, while in the state 
list it was obviously more convenient to follow the official 
order. Apart from this general consideration the following 
facts are in favour of the second alternative. (1) According 
to Plutarch, Aristid, 5, the Antiochis and Leontis stood side by 
side in the centre. (2) In Plutarch, Symp, Proh. 1. 10. 3, it is 
asserted on the authority of an epigram of Aeschylus that the 
Aeantis occupied the right. (3) Miltiades (c. 103. 3) is called o 
hUaroi, while his tribe Oeneis according to the official order was 
sixth. The validity of the first two arguments has been called 
in question, the former statement being said to be an invention 
to bring Aristides and Themistooles together, while the second 
may be due to confusion between Callimachus and his tribe. 
But the third could only be explained away on the supposition 
that the ffrparrfybs need not be a member of the tribe com- 
manded by him — which, though true of later times, is extremely 
improbable of a period when the ffTparrjybs led the tribe on the 
battle field. [Mr Giles suggests that 6 SiKaros as applied to 
Miltiades may be a reminiscence of the later phrase aMs 
dixaros rpLrot etc. where the general so mentioned is always 
the responsible head of the expedition.] For the latest discus- 
sion of the question see A. Mommsen, PhilologtiSf xlvii. 449.

The story of the wooing of Agariste, in connexion with the 
proverb od <f>povTls 'IriroxXe/dt?, probably arose and gradually 
developed itself within the family of the Alcmaeonidae, from 
whom Hdt. got it. It may be noticed that the house of the 
Alomaeonidae is exalted at the expense of Gimon's house, the 
Philaedae, to which Hippodides belonged. As the marriage fell 
in an Olympian year, it took place in 572 or 568 (Busolt, i.

12. ^cC8«vofi, despot of Argos. His date is disputed: it 
has been oustomary to place him in the eighth oentm^, but 
strong argmnents have been adduced for bringing him down 
to the seventh (for a discussion of the question see Bury, 
Nemean Odes of Pindar^ 254 sq.). He introduced the Aeginetan 
system of weights and measures (rod rd fUrpa rov^ffopros), 
which in historic times was in use over nearly all the Pelopon- 
nese, and which was directly borrowed from the Phoenico- 
Babylonian system. It is chronologically impossible that his 
son should have been one of the suitors, though the anachro- 
nism is less glaring, if Hdt. supposed him to have lived in the 
seventh century. 

15. ^vooTijoxifi — IOt|kc. The Eleans were the regular 
presidents of the Olympic festival. They appointed the super- 
intendents of the festival, ^EWavoSUai, originally one, then two, 
increased (b.c. 480) to nine, and finally (b.c. 472) to ten, pro- 
bably one from each tribe. In 01. 8 (748), according to the 
traditional chronology, Phidon himself undertook the presi- 
dency. According to Ephorus his claims were based on the 
fact that his ancestor Heracles had instituted the festival. The 
Eleans regained the presidency, according to Ephorus, by the 
help of the Lacedaemonians. They called this Olympiad dvo- 
XvfiTids, as having been irregularly celebrated. Mr Bury in his 
Pindar 256 sq. argues with great force that, just as the other 
great Greek festivals were established by despots, so the 
Olympian games, as a Pan-Hellenic festival, were instituted 
by Phidon; that on the decline of the power of Argos, the 
presidency was usurped by Elis with the support of Sparta; 
and that the tradition which recorded the existence of the 
Olympia in the eighth century was an invention of the Elean 
usurpers to give an appearance of justice to their claim.

new attack on Attica more difficult by extending the Athenian

According to Ephoros (Nep. Milt, 7) Miltiades was thrown 
into prison because he could not pay the fine. A person con- 
demned in a money penalty lost his civic rights till the fine 
was paid. The limit fixed for payment was the ninth prytany. 
The defendant might be kept in prison till the fine was paid ; 
in some cases he might give securities. If payment was not 
made in the allotted time the fine was doubled, and if this was 
not paid, the property of the defaulter was* confiscated. Any 
surplus was restored to him ; if the property did not realise 
enough to pay the fine, he himself and has descendants re- 
mained drtfioL till the fine was paid or remitted. 


2. IlcXao^C. It is impossible to attach any meaning to 
this name. As has been remarked, the Pelasgi appear only to 
be driven away again. This appearance of the Pelasgi in 
Athens has nothing to do with the theory of Herodotus that 
the Athenians were Pelasgi before they became Hellenes (vui. 
44). These Pelasgi have obviously been introduced to explain 
the Pelasgicon. It has been suggested that this story was 
put in circulation by Heoataeus. Their alleged occupation of 
Lemnos served a double purpose ; it accounted for the origin 
of the early population of the island, and it sufficiently excused 
the conduct of the Athenians in expelling them. But the name 
of the original inhabitants of Lemnos was not UeXoffyol but 
TupffTjvolf hence by a combination of these two things the Attic 
UeXaayol are called Tvparjifol, Thuc. iv. 109 (Ed. Meyer, Philo- 

208 HERODOTUS, VL [137—

insufficient, especially on the W., N.E., E. and S.E. sides. 
It is said to have had nine gates. These must be looked for 
on the west side of the Acropolis, where it is most accessible. 
In a narrower sense the name Pelasgicon was given to a tract 
of land on the west side of the Acropolis, originally doubtless 
that enclosed by the wall. It covered a considerable area, and 
enclosed many temples.

"Hemhisd in by a semioirole of hills the plain of Marathon 
extends itself along the East coast of Attica. It is about six 
miles in length, and three miles at its greatest breadth. 
Between and over the mountains several ways lead towards 
Athens ; the coast-road between Agrieliki and the sea was alone 
passable for chariots ; other paths lead through the mountains 
from the neighbourhood of Vrana, but these could be traversed 
only on foot. It was probably by Cephisia and the path 
leading over Aphorismus into the valley of Avlona that the 
Athenians marched to Marathon^." At the Northern and 
Southern extremities of the plain are marshes, that on the 
South, called Brexisa, is the smaller: it is passable in many 
parts, being most marshy at its borders, especially on the 
Eastern and Western sides. The marsh to the North of the 
plain is much more extensive in area, but, with the exception 
of some patches on the edges, particularly North-East towards 
Drakonera, it is dry in the end of summer. The plain is for 
the most part perfectly open, but to the south of the Charadra 
between Mt. Eotroni and the sea there is a sort of island of 
vineyards, intermingled with fruit and olive trees and an 
occasional pine or cypress 3. There are also some trees on the 
sandy shore north-west of the mouth of the channel Sutro.

VI. p. 4S. Aooordinff to Lobr, Jahrbuch. f. Class. Phil. 1888, p. 628, the 
plain is treelesa, except that at the foot of Kotroni there are three or 
fotir rows of trees, ahnond, fig, and olive. In antiqui^ it was known as 
cAotdieofiOf, <Aatiyct«. According to MilchhOfer the fact that land in 
Greece is now nnder cultivation is good evidence that it was coltiTated 
in antiquity, as the tendency rather has been to let land fall out of cul- 


The object of the Persians m landing at Marathon was 
to be able to fight the Athenians on gronnd favourable to 
themselves. Thus they would naturally encamp in the 
northern part of the plain between Eat6 Suli and Drakonera, 
leaving the passes on the south open for the passage of the 
Athenian forces^. The Athenian commanders would seek a 
place which would give them protection against the superior 
numbers of the enemy, and from which, if the Persians 
attempted to march past along the coast road — ^the only road 
passable for cavalry — they could fall upon them and break 
through their column. The narrow valley of Avlona, with the 
mountains rising abruptly on both sides, is an excellent 
position for a small army. The flanks would be protected by 
Kotroni on the left and Agrieliki on the right, and there would 
be no danger of being outflanked. It is here that the army of 
the Athenians is generally supposed to have taken up its 
position. Milchhdfer^, however, finds objections to this 
position and would locate the Athenian camp at the foot 
of Agrieliki in the neighbourhood of the chapel of St 
Dimitrios. In the absence of any definite information it is 
impossible to point with certainty to the precise spot where 
the battle was fought. Some would put it between the 
Charadra and Brexisa', with the Athenians facing north-east, 
the Persians south-west^. As this portion of the plain was 
probably in ancient times, as now, covered with vine and olive 
yards, Milchhdfer follows Eschenburg in seeking the scene

bring an army oat of it into battle array on the plain, and that it is

* The Soros, formerly supposed to be the tomb of the Athenians, has 
been excavated by Schliemann and found to contain prehistoric graves. 
[Since the above was written, however, there has appeared in the Bev" 
liner Philoloffitehe Woehentehrift of September 18, 1890, an account of 
fturther excavations in the Soros, which have revealed a quantity of 
human bones and ashes, lecythi, etc., so that after all it is probably the 
tomb of the Athenians. If this be so, it is a strong proof that the battle 
fought to the S. of the Charadra.] 


of the battle to the north of the Chsradra between Mt. Eoraki 
and the sea. A run of eight stadia after they had got clear of 
the vineyards of Eotroni would have brought the Athenians 
beyond the Gharadra, which in snmmer is dry. The course 
of the battle is in many points obscnre, and there is no 
hope that it will ever become clear. Incomplete and un- 
satisfactory as in many ways it is, the narrative of Hero- 
dotus remains the oldest and most trustworthy source: any 
further details furnished by later writers are either attempts 
to fill up the gaps by conjecture, or they are taken from 
the later tradition that has been influenced by rhetorical 
motives^. The chief of these later sources is the historian 
Ephorus^. The following are the chief points in which he 
difiers from Herodotus — (i) The council of war, in which 
it was determined to give battle, met not in the field but in 
Athens, and the subject of its deliberations was whether they 
should take the field or defend themselves behind their walls, 
(ii) The Plataeans joined the Athenians, not at Marathon but 
at Athens, (iii) The Greeks did not encamp over against the 
Persians for a considerable time, but gave battle on the 
following day. (iv) While Herodotus' account presupposes 
that the battle was fought on open ground, according to 
Ephorus the battle was fought at the foot of the mountains 
on ground not very open, and with trees in many places 
BO that the Athenians might be protected from the enemy's 
cavalry. A consequence of this is that the Athenians must be 
supposed to have acted on the defensive, which is somewhat 
at variance with their admirabilis pugnandi cupiditas (Nep.

the other hand the enemies of Athens took advantage of the frag-

the barbarians on their landing" inp6<rKpov<riuL ppayy roU /3ap/3apotc 
dir6/3a<rtv, Plutarch, de mcUign, Herod, c. 26). 

' His account is preserved in Nepos, MiUiadee, cc. 4—6. 


MUt, c. 5. 1). (y) While Herodotus gives the nmnbers 
neither of- the Athenians nor of the Persians, Nepos gives the 
Athenians together with the Plataeans as ten thousand, and the 
Persian forces as consisting of two hundred thousand infantry 
and ten thousand cavahry. With regard to the first point, 
though at first sight it might seem more natural that a 
decision should be come to before the march took place, it 
may be remarked that, when they found themselves confronted 
by the superior forces of the Persians, the generals might well 
consider whether it was advisable to fight i. When Ephorus 
says that the battle took place on the following day, this is an 
amendment of the rhetorical tradition according to which the 
battle was fought on the same day. As to his account of the 
battle, it is evidently an attempt to account for the absence of 
mention of the Persian cavalry, which must have puzzled 
ancient as well as modem readers'*'. 

This absence of mention of the Persian cavalry is the most 
striking gap in Herodotus' account of the battle, especially as 
we are told that the Persians landed at Marathon because the 
ground was most suitable for cavalry operations. Various expla- 
nations have been suggested, but, in the absence of any positive 
information, none of them rise above the level of more or less 
probable hypotheses. Curtius^ relying on a passage of Suidas ^,

in some points with Ephorus— in the connoil at Athens, and in the 
strength of the Athenians : it agrees with Isocrates in putting the battle 
on the same day as the march to Marathon. Further, there is that 
of Trogus in the Bpitome of Justins (2. 9\ which resembles the two 
preceding, but avoids the inconsistency of Bphoms by making the 
Athenians attack the Persians citato eurtu.

Btaried the theory that the shield ims displayed before the 
battle as a signal that Athens lay open to attack, that the 
Persians at once proceeded to embark, and that Miltiades made 
the attack when the cayalry was already on board ship. This 
arbitrary treatment of tradition has met with little favour. 
The fact that the cavalry took no part in the battle, or at the 
most a very unimportant one, has been accotmted for partly 
by the nature of the ground, partly by the speedy onset 
of the Athenians, which left the Persian commanders little 
time to send their cavalry against them, and, once they came to 
dose quarters, the cavalry would be of no use. On the defeat of 
the wings they fled with them and embarked while their centre 
was still engaged in conflict. By the time that the Athenians 
had driven the centre to the sea, most of the ships had 
already put off. The Persian fugitives found probably only 
the ships furthest north by the Lake of Drakonera still drawn 
up on the shore, and here it was that the Persians thrust one 
another into the marsh as depicted in the peture in the 
UoucCkri (Pausan. i. 82. 6)^. The hypothesis of Curtius has 
again been taken up by Eschenburg from considerations of the 
nature of the groimd, and the impossibility, in his opinion, of 
embarking the cavalry during the battle. He is followed by 
Milchhdfer (Curtius u. Kaupert, Karten von AtHca Text lu. — 
VI. p. 64). 

With regard to the display of the shield it is impossible to 
arrive at any certain conclusion. Herodotus distinctly asserts 
that the shield was exhibited after the battle, when the Per- 
sians were already embarked. Those who hold with Curtius 
are driven to the supposition that Herodotus has here fallen 
into error. Grote thinks that it was intended to be seen 
before the battle, to bring part of the Persian fleet round to 
Phalerum, while the army remained and fought at Marathon. 
Duncker supposes that it was a sign that all was ready at 
Athens for betraying the city to the Persians, so that the 
signal might still have been of signiflcance. It is impossible 
to get beyond mere hypotheses.

AND THE STBATEGI (to pp. 188, 191)« 

The recently published treatise On the Athenian Consti- 
tutiout asoribed to Aristotle, has thrown some fresh light 
on the history of these offices. This information oonld not 
be incorporated in the notes, and, at the same time, is so 
important that it deserves some mention. Briefly it is as 

The office of Polemaroh goes back to the time of the 
kings; originally he was commander-in-chief under an un- 
warlike sovereign (c. S [devrjipa 8' IrucaTiarri [iro\9']/jMpxio. dtcL 
roO (r6?) ywiaOai rtpas rlaif ^aaCKifav rk iroKi/ua fAaK[aKo6s]). 
Under the constitution of Cleisthenes the Polemarch is spoken 
of as leader of the whole army (c. 22 ro^ ffrparrryo^t ipoOyro 
icard ^vSdtt i^ ixdimfs ^vX^ ha^ rrjs M iirAayft ffrpartas ^fytpuuw 
tfif 6 Tcikiftapxos)* The account of the battle of Marathon, 
however, shews that this leadership must have been of a very 
modified nature, since on a campaign the actual conmiand lay 
with the strategi in rotation. The belief that Herodotus is 
in error in speaking of the Polemaroh as appointed by lot is 
confirmed; only the lot was introduced, or rather re-intro- 
duced, in the election of the archons in b.c. 487. Beverting 
to the constitution of Solon, the Athenians selected the ar- 
chons by lot from a body of 500 (Mr Eenyon suggests that 
this is a mistake for 100, the number in the author's own time, 
see below, 0' for p') selected by the people (e. 22 iicvdfuvaav

hf/urrA' xerraxoalwif roit furik r^v rvpavviba Tfwrw (ci de rp6-

tinned till some period after the sixth year from the death 
of Ephialtes, with this difference, that then the arohonship 
was thrown open to the ^evyircu (a 26 r^ S^ rw hvia. dp-

rOnt hnfio. dpfxf^imav). Finally 100 men were chosen by lot, 10 
from each tribe, and the archons selected by lot from them 
(c. 8 BdGf dtafiipei rout ^uXous to dixa Kkripwp iKdrnfif^ eTr* ix 
roinw icva/Mi^c[(y]). The duties of the polemarch are de- 
scribed in c. 58 and are such as are known already through 

Strategi are mentioned under the Draconian constitution 
(c. 4). They are said to have been increased to ten twelve 
years before Marathon, t.«. in b.g. 501, when one was elected 
from each of the ten tribes (see quotation above). In the 
fourth century they were elected from the whole people with- 
out distinction of tribe (c. 61 ffrparrryoi^s vp&repw /iAp df/>* 
<^Kdimis-> ^vX^, vw d' i^ dirdvTonf), The date of the election 
is also recorded; it took place in the first prytany after the 
sixth in which the omens were favourable (c. 44).
