It is to the Asiatic Greek, Herodotus, that we owe our knowledge of the earliest examples of classical Greek short-tales. Widely regarded as the father of history, two of his tales have been induced in this book. The Treasure of King Rhampsinitus is a tradition of Rameses the Great and deals with human ingenuity. In the tale of Polycrater and his Ring he gives an (originally prosaic) account of an exceptionally fortunate king. The Ladies of Syrause is largely conversational, and gives a vivid and rather amusing glimpse into the life of the author's native city.
