Herodotus's very detailed descriptions of Scythian customs

So I stumbled upon this today and its a high respected historian giving facts, yet it reads like Conan the Barbarian. Check out this link with part of Book 4: https://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/ ... s/4c*.html

Details their methods of sacrifice to "Ares" including human sacrifice. Also interesting the didnt really have pigs in their lands.

Don't be selfish, preserve this world for the next generations.

I'll never long for what might have been
Regret won't waste my life again
I won't look back I'll fight to remain

Link doesn't seem to work..?

Seems lately every time I find something related to Herodotus it turns out to be gold.

Luigi do you ever watch Robert Sepehr stuff?

If so do you enjoy?
I bet he has some vids on this somewhere
