Herodotus is widely accepted as the first historian of the age that showcased the rise and fall of the Greco-Roman empires. His works deftly portrayed conquest and defeat; romance and lost love; power and fealty; fear and loathing. And yet, his works always seemed to bring a bright, worldly view to the written history no matter how tumultuous it was.
His words were poetic and interesting, like the Herodotus mirror, that seems to tell a story of the influence of the antiquities and the round-and-round recollections of the time period. It is contemporary, but it is full of history, and the scalloped edges and brilliant mirror shape tell a tale that is both intriguing and bright. The subtle golden hue offers a gilt edged storyline to the whole package.
