692 For the language of “evidence” or “testimony” in this segment, cf. 1.200, 217; it is not made clear at this point what “Hecataeus” testifies to. The claim to sufficiency (here ἅλις, “ample”) mirrors similar formulae for closure (e.g., 1.58, 160, 182; 2.287). In fact, Josephus will refer to Hecataeus later (2.43), but in a different context.
