A daughter was born to him, whom he called Mandane; and Astyages dreamed that she urinated so much that the urine filled his city, then went on to flood all of Asia. He consulted the dream-experts among the magi, and was alarmed by the details which he heard from them. Later, when this Mandane was already old enough for marriage, he did not give her as wife to any of the Medes who were worthy of him, because he was fearful of the dream, instead he gave her to a Persian named Cambyses, who, he discovered, belonged to a good house and was mild in nature, but was stillhe thoughtfar inferior to a Mede of even middling status. In the first year of Mandane's marriage to Cambyses, Astyages had another dream: he dreamed that a vine grew from the genitalia of this daughter, and spread over the whole of Asia. He again consulted the dream-experts on what he had seen, then sent for his daughter to come to him from the land of the Persians. By now she was pregnant. When she arrived he kept her under guard, planning to kill the product of her womb: for the dream-experts among the magi interpreted his dream as indicating that his daughter's offspring would take his place upon the throne.

    Words: Herodotus, Cyrene Maps: THE GREEKS The Greeks did not conquer territory in Africa, but they founded colonies along its coast as part of the expansion of their overseas trading networks. They left behind several important sources, including the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea , which is a mariner's handbook of the Red Sea coast that lists port cities, markets, and trade goods. The Greek writer Herodotus is the most extensive early source on Africa. He was born around 480BC, and about 440BC, began to try and learn all he could about the Persian invasions of the eastern Mediterranean in 490 and 480BC. His research took him all over the place, and his stories, which survived to modern times, include a good deal of information about Egypt and the region to the west. Later on during his conquest of the Greek and Persian world (which began in 339BC), Alexander of Macedonia conquered Egypt as well. Upon his death, Egypt came under the control of

    A Brief Textual and Stylistic Analysis of Herodotus and Thucydides
    Art Madsen, M.Ed.

    The writings of two of the most highly respected historians of Ancient Greece have been well known for more than 2400 years. Throughout the intervening centuries, since their lengthy manuscripts were originally composed, much scholarly attention has been devoted to analysis of their accounts of famous wars and battles dating from the 500 to 400 B.C. era.
    In fact, Herodotus has become known as the "Father of History" in the sense that his writings preceded those of any other Western scholar who recorded historical events. He used recognized structuring techniques in his writing, unifying time, events and analytical interpretation in ways which distinguished him from mere writers of fictional literature or epic poetry. Thucydides followed Herodotus by several decades and began to further perfect historical style and content in his accounts of major events.
    This brief essay, therefore, will explore in what ways these two Greek historians differed, and will analyze how two approaches, separated by a generation, may have affected the accuracy, objectivity or credibility of the writings selected for review.
    A generation later, Thucydides, an Athenian by birth, unlike Herodotus who was born of Greek parentage on the Ionian Coast, seemed to emulate Herodotus in some respects, but surpassed him in other ways.

    Artemisia in Herodotus
    The following excerpts from Herodotus, Books 7 and 8, tell the story of Artemisia, queen of Halicarnassus in Asia Minor, a city which was said to be the birthplace of Herodotus himself. In 480 Artemisia led a small squadron of eastern Greek ships in Xerxes' invasion force against the Greek mainland states. Herodotus presents her as a remarkable woman and the shrewdest of Xerxes' commanders. The translation is based on the Oxford Classical Text (1962), edited by C. Hude. There is no reason for me to mention any of the other commanders, except for Artemisia. I consider her to be a particular object of admiration because she was a woman who played a part in the war against Greece. She took power on the death of her husband, as she had a son who was still a youth. Because of her courage and spirit she went to war although she had no need to do so. Her name was Artemisia; she was the daughter of Lygdamis, and was of Halicarnassian stock on her father's side and Cretan on her mother's. She led the forces of Halicarnassos, Cos, Nisyros and Calyndos, and supplied five ships. The ships she brought had the best reputation in the whole fleet, next to the ones from Sidon, and of all the allies she gave the king the best advice. I have listed the cities that she led; I have evidence that they all belong to the Dorian group, as the people of Halicarnassos come from Troizen, and the rest from Epidauros. (Herodotus 7.99) After the battle of Thermopylae and the Persian occupation of Attica, King Xerxes consulted his naval commanders about fighting a battle against the Greek fleet, which was gathering off Salamis. The only one to advise him against fighting at sea was Artemisia. In this incident her role is that of a tragic warner, as she gave Xerxes advice which he praised, but refused to follow. The defeat of the Persian fleet ensued. (Herodotus 8. 67-69)

    herodotus pauses to do what he does in this section digress.

    The Other Herodotus
    a book review by Richard Seltzer, Of course, I read selections back in high school. So I presumed that I knew what Herodotus was all about. Then in reading/seeing The English Patient , which quotes very different kinds of selections, I began to suspect I had majorly missed the mark. On finally reading from cover to cover, I discovered that the story of the invasions of Greece by Darius and Xerxes takes up a very small part of the book, at the end. Yes, that part has some dramatic scenes, some quotable quotes, and is "history." But most of Herodotus is anecdotal anthropology and travelogue and a delightful collection of rumors and traditions. The heart of the book isn't the history, it's the digressions. That's where you get the flavor of the times, a sense of what it might have been like to live in the fifth century B.C. Eye openers:
    • The physical territory of Greece was but a small part of the Greek world, long before Alexander conquered and hellenized. Considering how slow and difficult transportation was, it's truly remarkable the cosmopolitan nature of that Mediterranean world. There are Greeks and Greek influence all over Egypt and the influence of Egypt on Greece was strong. In fact, it's very difficult to say where one culture ends and another begins there is little correlation between political boundaries and cultural boundaries. The Greeks come across as a semi-nomadic people, frequently taking to their ships en masse, abandoning one territory/city and going off to conquer and settle territory somewhere else in the Mediterranean. They are nomads of the sea. They are like hermit crabs, shedding one shell and then taking over another, or sometimes growing another. There are Greek settlements all along the coasts of Africa, Italy, and Spain, and on almost every island not just in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, but also Sicily, Sardinia, and Corsica.

    ..............First, however, I must mention that hemp grown in Scythia, a plant resembling flax, but much coarser and taller. It grows wild as well as under cultivation, and the Thracians make clothes from it very like linen ones - indeed, one must have much experience in these matters to be able to distinguish between the two, and anybody who has never seen a piece of cloth made from hemp, will suppose it to be of linen. And now for the vapour bath: on a framework of three sticks, meeting at the top, they stretch pieces of woollen cloth, taking care to get the joints as perfect as they can, and inside this little tent they put a dish with red-hot stones in it. Then they take some hemp seed, creep into the tent, and throw the seed onto the hot stones. At once it begins to smoke, giving off a vapour unsurpassed by any vapour-bath one could find in Greece. The Scythians enjoy it so much they howl with pleasure Back to the index CLCIA, 54C Peacock Street, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 1TB, UK;
