Reading Herodotus Online



The Classics-L email list mentioned a new Internet site called HESTIA, for the Herodotus Encoded Space-Text-Imaging Archive. While the homepage may leave one wondering what the point is, one of the email list participants drew attention to the fact that you can use it to read Herodotus online with a relevant map right beside you:

This seems a far less shoulder-straining way to read and plot Herodotus than a literally and figuratively heavily-annotated version, like the Landmark series.
