An Athenian. This man was found into [sic] the war against the Persians standing as a corpse [propped up] on spears.
Greek Original:
Καλλίμαχος, Ἀθηναῖος. οὗτος εἰς τὸν κατὰ Περσῶν πόλεμον εὑρέθη ἐπὶ δοράτων ἱστάμενος νεκρός.
From iota 545. Herodotus 6.114 (web address 1) simply reports the death of Kallimachos, the Athenian polemarch, at the Battle of Marathon (490 BCE: mu 177) without comment, and later versions which purport to know the precise manner of his death are almost sure to be fictitious.
