Clearly, Hunter's suggestion was completely independent of Luschnat, but the duplication of effort is a warning that older works have their value, on literary as well as historical aspects of Thucydides.

In between Strasburger and Marinatos-Rawlings, the alleged Herodotean resonance here had been denied by Dover in HCT for oddly unconvincing reasons to do with the religious outlook of the two men; but Strasburger's case was reasserted strongly by Connor in 1984, and I mentioned it in my 1987 book and discussed it in my 1992 article. Kennelly, then, has ignored one of the most discussed and most interesting candidates for a Herodotean allusion in Thucydides.

Proof can hardly be had. But it is no disproof to urge against me, as Kennelly does, that Thucydides might have cited other examples of Corinthian euergesiai listed in Herodotus such as their arbitration in Athens' favour against Thebes (Hdt. vi. 108), and that it is arbitrary to suppose that he went to Herodotus for just this one. In the context of the argument between the Corcyraeans and Corinthians, in which naval power features so prominently, an earlier naval euergesia was obviously a suitable reminder.
