    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    [automatically translated] It highlights the variatio-emulatio relationship established between the dialectical relationship existing between Xerxes, Mardonius and Artabanus, reported by Herodotus and earlier the Persian invasion of Greece, and those between the demos, Alcibiades and Nicias, described by Thucydides the eve the Athenian expedition to Sicily. The absence of the dream in Thucydides, Herodotus that allows to resolve differences of opinion, indicates the preference of the Athenian historian for the conceptualization of the reasons, the causes and consequences of events, desecrating the idea of a history conditioned by the case.
