The Persian Wars Complete, Herodotus

THESE are the researches of Herodotus of Halicarnassus, which he publishes, in thehope of thereby preserving from decay the remembrance of what men have done, and of  preventing the great and wonderful actions of the Greeks and the Barbarians from losingtheir due meed of glory; and withal to put on record what were their grounds of feuds.

According to the Persians best informed in history, the Phoenicians began toquarrel. This people, who had formerly dwelt on the shores of the Erythraean Sea, havingmigrated to the Mediterranean and settled in the parts which they now inhabit, began atonce, they say, to adventure on long voyages, freighting their vessels with the wares of Egypt and Assyria.
