Herodotean Chronology Revisited
This chapter studies the kinds of chronological information given in Herodotus' history, arguing that there is a Persian-based series of dates for the Ionian Revolt and the Persian Wars, 500-480 (and reviving the suggestion of W. G. Forrest that a notorious problem can be solved if we believe that Darius' heralds to Greece were sent before Mardonius' campaign of 492 rather than before Datis' and Artaphernes' campaign of 490); before that he has no systematic chronology but regnal years and similar data which have come to him with his various stories, but if we try to combine his data as he himself did not we find that they are more often compatible than problematic.
