Herodotos is designed to help students in all difficulties connected with the Greek language which the chapters contain, and also to supply them with full information as to the historical facts which they include, or to which they refer. I have hoped by the Historical and Geographical Index to help students to take a somewhat wider interest in Hellenic history, which is too apt to mean with most of us merely the history of A thens and Sparta. My chief obligations, acknowledged frequently in the notes, are among others to the editions of Dr K. A bicht, Leipzig, 1882; and Dr H. Stein, Berlin, 1882. Much illustrative matter, however, which I have found for myself, or which has long been the common property of scholars, I have not thought it necessary to put down to the credit of those editors, although it may be often found in their works.
