Description A large part of the oeuvre written by Herodotus of Halicarnassus consists of narratives presenting female protagonists. The historian’s interest and curiosity are fascinated and attracted by mysterious queens with masculine attitudes. Perhaps the best-known heroine of that uncommon ‘elite’ is Artemisia, queen of Halicarnassus and compatriot of Herodotus. Describing her presence and action during the great Persian War against Greece, the paper attempts to investigate her role by comparing her with the Amazons of myth and legend and their influence on the barbaric Scythian tribe of the Sauromatae. Herodotus interweaves reality and mythology in order to portray an unusual type, a miraculous female figure who commands our admiration.
Dobršen del opusa Herodota iz Halikarnasa vsebuje pripovedi z ženskimi junakinjami v osrednjih vlogah. Herodotovo pozornost pritegnejo in ga očarajo misteriozne kraljice, katerih poteze spominjajo na moško ravnanje. Morda najbolj poznana junakinja iz te neobičajne »elite« je Artemizija, kraljica v Halikarnasu in Herodotova rojakinja. Članek opisuje njeno ravnanje v veliki vojni med Grki in Perzijci in skuša raziskati njeno vlogo v tem dogajanju na podlagi primerjave med legendarnimi in mitičnimi Amazonkami in vplivom, ki so ga imele nad barbarskim skitskim plemenom Savromatov. Herodot vzpostavlja neposredno povezavo med realnostjo in mitologijo in na ta način portretira nenavadni tip skrivnoste ženske figure, ki slednjič požanje naše občudovanje.
