Daily mythology: Herodot

Today I definitely want to boast that Herodotus is born in Halikarnassos, means in Bodrum where we live today. Let’s hope that his art of telling has been endorsed to me.

His reports, especially from Egypt, but from many far away regions too, are precious for the science of history. But he has been named the “father of lies” too. We are told about nosefeeters, temple-prostitutes, ants as big as dogs, mummies and master-thieves. But: A lie never lives to be old. Did he travel at all? Psaw! Karl May hasn’t been seeing the Lenape neither. And a little bit of lying motivates your own thoughts? Don’t believe everything!
