Cadmo di Mileto, primo storico dell’Occidente: i dati biografici

Federica Fontana

Abstract


The present paper offers a re-examination of the evidence about Cadmus of Miletus, who was the first historian to write an historical prose writing according to the ancient sources. In particular, the reappraisal of the criticism, which Felix Jacoby gave on the chronology and even on the historicity of the ancient historian under his life in the Suda, lets us esteem the testimonies of Pliny and Flavius Josephus more likely and speak in favour of the historicity and the chronology to the sixth century B.C., given by these ancient sources for Cadmus.
