Book.Edith Foster and her colleague from Ohio Wesleyan University, Donald Lateiner, have edited a new book of essays arguing that Thucydides read Herodotus (and Homer) and that these authors are closely connected. The cover is from a 16th Century German manuscript illustrating a meeting between Herodotus and Thucydides (as described by Marcellinus in his "Life of Thucydides"). Herodotus is reading his works to the Athenians. The small boy looking on to his immediate left is Thucydides, who is said to have cried upon hearing the reading. For more information about the book, see here:
