Herodotus through the 24-hr News Cycle

by Scott Manning on March 19, 2014

While I was reading and tweeting Herodotus, I became inspired to produce a half dozen mock images of his stories as though Fox News or MSNBC reported them. My only goal was to bring more attention to Herodotus.

In case you missed any of them, here they all are in one place (click for a higher resolution).

Xerxes

Themistocles

Leonidas01

Leonidas02

Delphi

Thermopylaedead02

Thermopylaedead03

Each of these received a few retweets or favorites, but the death of Leonidas got the most attention.
