69 The nineteenth century British classicist George Grote observed that Hesiod’s story of the five ages represents a fusion of two distinct and incompatible myths. The first, which predates Hesiod, is the myth of the Four Ages, all bearing names of metals, and succeeding each other in declining order of value. The second is the age of heroes, which Hesiod or a precursor, inserted between the third and fourth age. Berlin, Crooked Timber of Humanity, p. 25.
