Herodotus on Chephren (Khafre)

According to Herodotus, Chephren (the Greek name for Khafre) was an evil ruler like his father Cheops (Khufu). Herodotus also confirms that his pyramid was smaller than that of his father and contained no underground chambers or stream. He credits him with a fifty-six year reign. He has little else to add about him.
