fortresses, established at regular intervals. Among these posts was Critalla, celebrated by Herodotus as the spot upon which Xerxes collected his army, when about to invade Greece. It appears to have been situated near Tyana, (now Danam,) but a few days' march from the gates of Cilicia, as the avenues to that country were called.-- Cyrus, the younger, advanced by this route when he invaded Mesopotamia, as we learn from Xenophon. It seems, however, to have been little travelled by merchants, except such as were bound to Tarsus. Those who designed to go farther, turned off at Holma, a place situated on the borders of the Pareoratic Phrygia, and followed a route somewhat deflected to the North, traversing Lycaonia and Cappadocia, and crossing the Euphrates near Samosata. What Herodotus tells us of the Scythians, he probably heard in Albia or Cyzicus. Of course nobody imagines that he ever visited in person those still more remote regions which he describes in his fourth book.
