Herodotus tells us that they were far more wonderful than anything. The greeks built even the temple of artemis at emphasis on the mainland of what is now turkey or the temple of hera on the greek island of samothrace as ever herodotus is gently reminding his readers that the land of egypt is more ancient vast and wonderful than their own greek civilization of which they are so proud.

"Of streams. But there are many of these rivers in syria and many also in libya. They are affected. Did no such manner as the nile. The second way shows more ignorance than that which has been mentioned and it is more marvelous to tell fo it says that the river produces these effects because it flows from the ocean and that the ocean flows round to whole us. The third of the ways is much the most speeches but nevertheless it is the most mistake can go for indeed. This way has no more truth in it than the west. Alleging as it does that. The nile flows from melting snow when asked it flows of libya through the midst of the ethiopians and so comes out into egypt. How then should it flow from snow. When it flows from the hottest parts to those which are kula and indeed most of the facts are such as to convince a man one. At least who is capable of reasoning about such matters got it is not at all likely that it flows from snow. The first on greatest evidence is afforded by the winds which blow hot from these regions. The second is that the land is lang this always and without fast whereas after snow has fallen rain must necessarily come in five days so that if it snowed in those politics may would fool that the third evidence is a folded by the people dwelling there who of a black colored by reason of the burning heat moreover kites and swallows remain there through the air and leave the land and cranes flying from the cold weather which comes on in the region of sylvia. Come regularly to these parts for wintering. If then it snowed episode little in that land through which the nile flows around in which it has its wise none of those things which take place as necessity compels us to admit. Ask for him.

"Well must die. Of the animals that live with men, there are great numbers. And would be many more but for the accidents which befall the cats. For when the females have produced young, they are no longer in the habit of going to the males. Then, these seeking to be united with them are not able. To this end, then they can try this follows. They either take away by force or removed secretly the young from the females and kill them. But after killing, they do not eat them. And the females being deprived of their young and desiring more therefore come to the males. For it is a creature that is fond of its young. Moreover when a fire occurs, the cat seemed to be definetely possessed. For while the Egyptians stand intervals and look after the cats not taking any care to extinguish the fire, the cats slipping through or leaping over the men jump into the fire. And when this happens great morning comes upon the Egyptians. And in whatever houses a cat has died by unnatural death. All those who dwell in this house shave their eyebrows only. But those in which it dog has died, shave their whole body and also their head. The. Cats when they are dead are carried away to sacred buildings in the city, of Bouba status.

"Us The creed. Animals of Ancient Egypt dedicated to to Kayla in California. Hello this is not and I'm here with some more from Herodotus. The father of history who lived two thousand five hundred years ago. Herodotus was a Greek who liked to travel he went around much of the Persian empire including Egypt and wrote down what he found there affair. Bits of what we know about life in ancient Egypt comes to us from Herodotus in the last episode. I told you about some of the wild animals of Ancient Egypt. Herodotus mentioned in this episode. I'm going to be focusing on the animals that the Egyptians worshiped as gods the holiest of all animals in ancient Egypt were cows and bulls. The ancient Egyptians were not the only people to worship cattle. For example in ancient times bulls were worshiped on the Greek island of Crete. The home of the Bull God the minor tour and cattle sacred to Hindus to this day. And perhaps you know the story of Moses from the Bible he and his fellow Israelites escaped from captivity in Egypt and crossed the desert on the way they paused. While Moses climbed up Mount Sinai to fetch a stone tablet on which were written the ten commandments or laws. Like you shall not steal and you shall not kill well. Moses was away up the mountain some of his followers lost faith in God and began to worship a golden calf. So why would people worship cows well? In many religions Gods and animals are associated with ideas. People might worship bull because he represents strength and masculinity and they might worship a milk giving cow because she represents motherhood and nurturing perhaps they would prey to their cattle God's for a strong healthy family and nation in ancient Egypt booze cows were sometimes seen as Gods on earth. For example in the city of Memphis people worshipped Abboud called apoptosis otherwise known as happy the priests of Memphis always kept one real life will to worship. They always chose a bull to represent. Apps who was black with a white crescent shape on his side or white triangle on his forehead when the bull died they found another bill with similar markings. But the ancient Egyptians. We're not vegetarians and unlike Hindus today they did sometimes eat beef. The sacrifice of a bull was an extremely solemn ceremony for the ancient Egyptians. The priests would choose a black bull and check that it did not have a single hair that was not completely black when they heard killed it they would cook the meat of the body and they saved the head of the bull they prayed that all evil and bad fortune should be transferred onto the head of the boo then they will take the head to the market and if there were any Greek traders. There herodotus tells us they would sell it to them. Presumably the Greek traders did not suspect that the head was full of Sin and evil. But if the priests could not find any Greeks they through the Bulls head into the river and got rid of it that way. This odd ceremony was a way of getting rid of evil. There's also a similar idea in the Bible when the people of Israel prayed all lessons onto a goat and then cast the goat out into the desert to this day. If we say that. Somebody is a scapegoat. We mean that they are being blamed for other people's wrongdoing booze. Were far from the only sacred creatures in ancient Egypt. The God horus was often shown as a man with the head of a hunting bird. Called a Falkand falcons have fantastic eyesight. And as they saw through the sky they can spot tiny animals on the ground. Kings are also meant to be farsighted and wise and so horror us the Falcon God was closely associated with the Jip- Shin Phero. The faeroe may even have been the God horse in human form or so. The ancient Egyptians believed I mentioned in an earlier episode. How the Egyptians loved cats cats kept family safe by killing snakes and rats? The cat goddess was best debt and every year they ancient Egyptians celebrated her with a huge party. They sailed down the Nile to her temple. At per bast singing and dancing and rocking the boats on the way her auditors tells us that if a home caught fire people would save the cats before trying to save themselves and if a household cat died the whole family would shave their eyebrows to show that grief. And if anyone killed a cat they were guilty of murder and penalty was death which shows how much the ancient Egyptians respected cats by the way our word cat comes from the North African word cater but the ancient Egyptian word for cat was Mao because cats make a sound like Mao dogs. Were also important. The God anubis who guarded the underworld added Dog's head. The head of a new best looks a little bit like a Greyhound. They're also dog breeds today. Call passenger and Pharaoh hounds that come down to us from ancient Egypt. Rich Egyptians kept gazelles that were renowned for that grace and beauty. A Gazelle by the way is a type of African dear. The Egyptian Queen is Yelm. Cab loved her pet so much that when the deer died she was mummified and placed with jewels inside. An ornate box called a sarcophagus. The gods so big had the head of a crocodile and the priests of his temples kept sacred crocodiles and fed them on the most tasty cuts of meat and honey cakes. And of course the mighty and mysterious spinks often shown in giant statues. The size of pyramids was a man with the head of a lion for me. The animal gods are a large part of what makes ancient Egypt so fascinating along with a mighty pyramids the ancient mummies the rich treasures and the barges floating down the River Nile. It really was a civilization like no other. And I'm delighted to dedicate this story to to Kayla in California who is around five and a half years old. Her Sisters Brooke and Samantha. Tell me that they listened to story almost every day particularly while they color after they eat dinner. Well thank you. So much to Kayla and Samantha and broke for listening to story and for supporting on Patriot. We really do appreciate your support for now from me Birdie Goodbye..
Herodotus - the Animals of Ancient Egypt
"Ancient times. Crocodiles were common in Egypt. These days Egypt does not have many crocodiles as they can't swim. Pass the great concrete. As when damn that now blocks the River Nile but here auditors sore these fierce reptiles snoozing with their mouths open on the banks of the Nile and he noted that small birds sometimes hopped inside the crocs mouths and picked up bits of food from between their teeth. This type of bird is called the Egyptian plover and it still cleans crocodile's teeth for them. Herodotus describes how the crocodiles grows into an enormous animal after hatching out of a tiny egg he says it has is like a pigs and it's huge teeth. Stick out of its mouth. Well he gets some of his fax. Almost not quite correct for instance. He says the crocodile does not eat anything during four months of winter. Actually it does eat but not very much during that time. He also says that the crocodile does not have a tongue in fact it does have one but it's rather small he tells us that some Egyptians held crocodiles to be sacred which means they worshiped him. Like gods those who celebrated crocodiles brought them up at home presumably in something like a bathtub. They decorated their pet crocs with earrings and bracelets for their feet other Egyptians in my view the more sensible ones saw crocodiles as dangerous enemies and even ate them when they got the chance. They used pigs as bait to hunt crocodiles. Some Egyptians also thought that hippopotamuses were sacred. Her auditors probably did not see these creatures for himself. He claimed that hippos had Maine's entails like horses and nayed like them to. He also thought that their hooves were cloven. Split like a bulls. It's not hard to see where he got. These mistaken ideas from the word hippopotamus comes from two Greek words meaning horse and posthumous meaning river so hippopotamus means river horse. He also told us that authors lived in the Nile in those days and in fact ancient Egyptians made statues of waters standing up as if they were praying. Then he tells us that there's a sacred bird which is not seen with his own eyes but only in paintings the feathers of this remarkable bird where red and speckled with gold it was shaped something like an eagle. This was called the Phoenix. The Phoenix lived most of the time in Arabia and was a very rare visitor to Egypt once about every five hundred years when his father died the Phoenix made an egg out of myrrh which is a perfumed gum or resin from the trunk of a tree. He hollowed out the egg and put his father inside it before carrying him to the Temple of the sun in Halio Palace in Egypt where it buried him. Even Herodotus can't bring himself actually to believe this Tall Tale in truth the Phoenix is a mythical bird that does not exist at all. He also tells us about a harmless Egyptian snake with two horns on its head please. Snakes were sacred to the Egyptians when they died they were buried in the temple of Zeus. Whose name was a raw or Eytam the Sun God. He also tells us about tiny snakes which flew every spring from Arabia to Egypt. He has surely thinking about locusts which alike grasshoppers they're described in the Bible as coming to play the Egyptians according to Herodotus a sacred type of bird called the abyss defends Egypt from flying snakes it describes that abyss as having the legs of a crane and along hooked beak Japan's particularly revered the abyss because it fought off the flying snakes. Well those are some of the wild animals and birds that option is considered to be sacred but the most sacred animal of all for ancient. Egyptians was the cow or bull. And next time I will be telling you how the ancient Egyptians worshiped

"The crew replied that he was still in sicily and doing well at that moment arian who had been listening to all this from behind the curtain stepped out into full view still wearing his performing costume just as the sailors had seen him lost before he made his leap from the ship they were so struck with amazement that they weren't able to deny that dastardly plot and herodotus tells us that he has heard this story from both the corinthians and the people of less boss and that he's seen a bronze statue of ariane riding the dolphin in the temple at cape town ourem where he came ashore the dolphin picked him up on his back and swam until he was near enough to dry land for his human passenger to scramble ashore at cape town rom on the bottom of the peloponnese where there was a temple to the secord poseidon and also the cave of haiti's which the greeks believed was the entrance to the underworld of the dead so herodotus clearly believe the story of area own and the dolphin many people however seem to think that this is a myth meaning that it's probably not true in fact the famous english historian edward gibbon call the story of ariane a most on philisophical fable since its opposes the friendship of a man and a seafish elsewhere he remarked at herodotus sometimes rights for children and sometimes rights will philosophers i think he's using the word philosophers in the meaning of those who love wisdom and truth but is the story so unlikely the sea of course is mainly full of fish but dolphins live there too and they are unusual because like us they are mammals mammals are animals that feed their offspring on breast milk dolphins form close families protect one another even give each other gifts speak to each other with sounds and generally act in ways that are not entirely different from us humans.

"Ariane and the dolphin dedicated to alex and emily hello this is burti and i'm here with another story from the histories of herodotus written two and a half thousand years ago some people think that this particular story is a myth but i'm not so sure see what you think the story starts in corinth which was one of the great cities of ancient greece at the time of the story corinth was ruled by a man called perry enda who lived about six hundred years before the birth of christ we will hear more about perry andrew and corinth another time but for now i'll explain that he loved the arts including wonderful columned buildings paintings on pottery and music in this time the most famous musician in greece was arian who was born on the greek island of lesbos near turkey perry enda invited area to come and stay with him in corinth and to play his music at the court so what was aryans music like i'm not going to try and give you a rendition but i can say that he sang and played the liar which is a stringed instrument as he was born near asia i think his music would have sounded slightly easton he was particularly famous for inventing a kind of song and dance dedicated to dyonisis the greek god of wine well the follow of dine isis were known for being pretty wild and it seems likely that the music of ariane would have been a bit out there and headed stumping beat to it.
