Opis: Biographia Classica, Vol. 2 - Author Unknown

Excerpt from Biographia Classica, Vol. 2: The Lives and Characters of All the Classic Authors, the Grecian and Roman Poets, Historians, Orators, and Biographers, With an Historical and Critical Account of Them and Their Writings; Illustrating Their Several Excellencies, and Shewing Their Defects
To that end, he travelled in Egypt, saw all the principal Cities, carefully viewed the chief Curiosities and most remarkable Places; and conversed with the Priests of that Country, who informed him their ancient History, and acquainted him with their Customs sacred and civil. Indeed, he speaks of their religious Rites with such Plainness and Clearness in some Cases, and such Reserve and Reverence in others, that I am apt to believe he was initiated into their Ceremonies, and consecrated a Priest of some of their Orders. He likewise visited several Parts of Greece, Thrace and Scythia: He went to Babylon and Tyre, and was in Arabia and Palestine. Thus, being acquainted with the most famous Countries, and valuable Things, and knowing the most considerable Persons of the Age, he applied himself to write the History of the Greeks and Barbarians; and performed the noble Work with that Judgment, Faithfulness and Eloquence, that gained him universal Applause and Approbation.
This great Writer, according to Pamphyla, cited by Aulus Gellius, must be born in the first Year of the seventy-fourth Olympiad, since he was Fifty-three at the Beginning of the Peloponnesian War, and but four Years old when Xerxes marched into Greece.
