Different from that of today's historians. Although the ancient Greeks loved their history stories, they studied it not for the knowledge of (demystified) facts. On the contrary, they liked their history to support claims on greatness and to that end liberally added ancient mighty kings and gods to their history. Homeros' Iliad and Odyssey are tipical cases in point.

Only the ancient Greek historian Herodotus set out to study history by going after the facts; he is therefore - and despite many flaws in the way he went about it - considered to be the 'father of modern history writing'.
