Excerpt from Lectures on Ancient History, From the Earliest Times to the Taking of Alexandria by Octavianus: Comprising the History of the Asiatic Nations, the Egyptians, Greeks, Macedonians and Carthaginians

Between Aratus and Polybius, there occurs an interval, during which little or nothing was done for the history of the Greek nation. There was then more learning than before; the Greeks could not but regard themselves as insignificant and of no weight; and this feeling deterred historians. The two Rhodians, Zeno and Antisthenes, alone, who flourished at the time when Rhodes was at the height of its prosperity and power, composed some historical works.
