Herodotos, expanded from a previous edition of the first ninety chapters, is designed to help students in all difficulties connected with the Greek language which it contains, and also to supply them with full information as to the historical facts which it includes, or to which it refers. 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 DrH. 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. Cambridge, 189a H. VIII.
