About the Author:

HERODOTUS (ca. 484 B.C ca. 425 B.C.) was born into a family of the upper rank at Halicarnassus in Asia Minor, at that time subject to the Persian Empire. Because of his kinship to the epic poet Panyasis, who was put to death for political reasons, Herodotus left Halicarnassus as a young man, never to return. Most of what we know of him and his travels is derived from his writings. He lived for a time in Athens, where he was on friendly terms with the great men of the day, including Sophocles and Thucydides. Unable to obtain the franchise at Athens, he sailed from that port to the new colony of Thurii on the Gulf of Tarentum in Italy, where he became a citizen. He died and was buried there.

CHARLTON GRIFFIN is one of the great readers of our time. His classical theatre training combined with his wonderful, incisive interpretations of great literature make him a unique talent. Mr. Griffin's vocal performance is vibrant, soothing, compelling, and hypnotic. Among other honors, he has twice received the Audie Award for Classic Fiction.
