ANTIOCHUS OF SYRACUSE, Greek historian, flourished
about 420 B.C. Nothing is known of his life, but his works,
of which only fragments remain, enjoyed a high reputation.
He wrote a History of Sicily from the earliest times to 424,
which was used by Thucydides, and the Colonizing of Italy,
frequently referred to by Strabo and Dionysius of Halicarnassus.

A few typographical errors have been corrected. They
appear in the text like this, and the
explanation will appear when the mouse pointer is moved over the marked
passage. Sections in Greek will yield a transliteration
when the pointer is moved over them, and words using diacritic characters in the
Latin Extended Additional block, which may not display in some fonts or browsers, will
display an unaccented version.
