The Persian Wars by Herodotus

The HTML text provided here originally came from the ASCII format provided at an Internet Gopher site. Since the original Internet text was not indexed, the paragraph index marker system was added which was used in The Modern Library edition of Rawlinson's text, published under the title of The Persian Wars by Herodotus, 1942. Hopefully they represent a standard notation for referencing the text. In addition, at each visible paragraph marker there is also a HTML link, which will aid in cross referencing the text.

The Internet ASCII source was a translation of Herodotus by George Rawlinson. The Modern Library version is very similar, but it reflects editor updates.
