History beginning with the death of Agathias

He wrote a history beginning with the death of Agathias. (Suid s. v. Μένανδρος; Codinus, de Orig. Constant. p. 26; Malalas, Chron. i. p. 200.) It should be observed that in MSS. and early editions the name of Herodotus is frequently confounded with Herodorus and Heliodorus.

Whether the work Περὶ τῆς ῾ομήρου Βιοτῆς, is the production of a grammnarian of the name of Herodotus, or whether the author's name is a mere invention, it is impossible to say; thus much only we know, that some of the ancients themselves attributed it to Herodotus the historian.
