ibutary vassal of Egypt, B. C. 610. In the fourth year of the reign of Jehoiakim, B. C. 606, Nebuchadnezzar attacked Carchemish, defeated Necho, who had marched thither to meet him, and, advancing onward with uninterrupted success, reduced to subjection all the country between "the river of Egypt" and the Euphrates. He would appear also to have invaded Egypt itself. From this period certainly Necho made no effort to recover what he had lost, if we except a preparation for war with Babylon (B. C. 603, the third year of Jehoiachim), which was soon abandoned in fear. In B. C. 601, Necho died after a reign of sixteen years, and was succeeded by his son Psammis or Psammuthis (Hdt. 2.158, 159, 4.42; Larch. ad ll. cc.; Diod. 1.33; Wess. ad loc.; Strab. i. p.56, xvii. p. 804; Plin.

Stesi'chorus (*Sthoi/xoros), of Himera in Sicily, a celebrated Greek poet, contemporary with Sappho, Alcaeus, Pittacus, and Phalaris, later than Alcman. and earlier than Simonides, is said to have been born in Ol. 37, B. C. 632, to have flourished about Ol. 43, B. C. 603, and to have died in Ol. 55. 1, B. C. 560, or Ol. 56, B. C. 556-552, at the age of eighty or, according to Lucian, eighty-five. (Suid. s. vv. *Sthsi/xoros, *Simwni/dhs, *Sapfw/; Euseb. Chron. Ol. 43. 1; Aristot. Rh. 2.20.5 ; Cyrill. Julian. i. p. 12d.; Lucian. Macrob. 26 ; Clinton, F. H. vol. i. s. a. 611. vol. ii. s. aa. 556, 553.) Various attempts have been made to remove the slight discrepancies in the above numbers ; but it appears better to be content with the general result, which they clearly establish, that Stesichorus flourished at the beginning and during the first part of the sixth century B. C. There appears, at first sight, to be a discrepancy between these testimonies and the statement of the Parian M
