624 We strike here a recurrent problem: when is Josephus paraphrasing his source and when is he citing (more or less) verbatim? Texts in accusative and infinitive (e.g., 1.192) are clearly paraphrase, while those with full introduction (e.g., λέγει δ’ οὕτως) and vivid detail are almost certainly verbatim citations (e.g., 1.201-4). In between stand many examples of φησίν (“he says”) followed by indicative verbs, which could represent either. Editors differ in the application of quotation marks, and I am less certain than most in attributing statements fully to Josephus’ source. The effort to reconstruct Ps.-Hecataeus is crucially determined by such judgments; see especially at 1.191.
