Despite Aristotle’s firm opinion on the differences between poetry and historiography, an elegiac inscription set up in Herodotus’ hometown, Halicarnassus, praised him as “the pedestrian Homer of historiography”. As it is well known, the uncertain author of the treatise On the Sublime referred to Herodotus as ὁμηρικώτατος, “the most Homeric”. In my paper, I will not take into consideration the literary connections between Homer and Herodotus, so much analyzed by modern scholars. I will rather discuss a specific verb, τεκμαίρομαι, and try to demonstrate that the way in which Herodotus employs it still partially depends on the Homeric background of the verb itself.
