Although chronography is usually linked to the development of local history (Jacoby’s fifth sub-genre), it is formally separate. Chronography shares with local history, however, a style of dating by annual magistrates, in Hellanicus’ case, the year of office of the chief priestess of Hera at Argos. Under this rubric, Hellanicus arranged the events of individual years, not only for Argos but also for all Greece. Thus despite its ‘‘local’’ dating system, the Priestesses is Panhellenic and embraces events throughout Greece.
