"To Herodotus we are indebted for what we know of the ancient dynasties of the Medes, Persians, Phænicians, Lydians, Greeks, Egyptians, and Scythians.-He is an imitator of Homer, whom he resembles in copiousness of invention, and elegance of phrase; in sweetness, ease, and perspicuity. --Cicero says that he was an oratorical, as well as a poetical historian, and that no eloquence ever pleased him like his.'Robinson's ANTIQUITIES OF GREECE.
