Pericles not an authour[edit]

He did not write anything. Must be erased from list.

Agreed- Perikles' Funerary Oration is an imagined speech put into Perikles' mouth by Thucydides. It may (or may not) bear some relation to a speech actually given by Perikles; but we do not have that actual speech, just Thucydides version of it.
