1 TheOldandtheRestless: TheEgyptiansandtheScythiansin Herodotus’ Histories Senior Project Submitted to Division of Language and Literature of Bard College byRobertHagan Annandale-on-Hudson, New York May 2011
2 Acknowledgments On the completion of this sometimes challenging, but always rewarding project, I thank my family and friends for their support throughout the year. Thanks also go to the classics department at Bard, including Bill Mullen and Thomas Bartscherer for their help and advice, as well as one dearly needed extension. I must also acknowledge Jamie Romm, not only for his work that has been instrumental in this project, but for his support and sophia throughout my years at Bard that have engendered in me a love of classics. Finally, my effusive thanks go to Carolyn Dewald, who, whether it be teaching the aorist of “hit the cat” or sharing her passion for Herodotus with me, has greatly shaped my education at Bard. I cannot thank her enough for her time and aid.
