Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The logographers were the Greek historiographers and chroniclers before Herodotus, "the father of history." Herodotus himself called his predecessors (logopoioi, from, poieo, 'to make'). Thucydides applies the name to all who preceded him, including Herodotus (I, 21). Their representatives with one exception came from Ionia and its islands, which from their position were most favourably situated for the acquisition of knowledge concerning the distant countries of East and West.show more
