Originally published in 1918. While it requires little thought to recognize in Hecatacus a figure of importance in his day, an appraisal in detail of his contribution to science and history is a matter of considerable difficulty. This book includes a general survey of him as well as chapters on Hecataeus as Historian of Egypt, and the objections to this view.

Table of Contents

1. Introduction. 2. General Survey. 3. Summary of the Principal Data. 4. Hecataeus as Historian of Egypt. 5. Objections to this View. 6. The List of Kings from Moeris to Sethos and the Chronological Errors of Herodotus. 7. Fiction and Citation in Ancient History.
