—i.e. ἃ ἐγένετο κτλ
—this is the only instance in which Thuc. names another historian. H. of Mitylene was contemporary with Pericles, and in his Ἀτθίς
(here called Ἀττικὴ ξυγγραφή
) he included a sketch of historical events, and is said to have carried his work down at least to 406 B.C.
27. βραχέως τε καὶ τοῖς χρόνοις οὐκ ἀ
.—Hellanicus must have been very scanty and inexact in the dates for this period, since this description would apply in a considerable degree to the better account that Thuc. proceeds to give. For the probable dates of the events to be noticed see Introd. p. xxix.
