Herodotus, Histories 2.141, where he mentions the devastation of Sennacherib’s army by a plague of mice while camped at Pelusium, on the road to Egypt. This account differs from the Biblical version of events, in which Sennacherib’s army is decimated by “an act of God”; see Isaiah 37:36; 2 Kings 19:35; 2 Chronicles 32:21. See also Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews 10.21. See the reconstruction of these events from the documentary sources in Alan B. Lloyd, Herodotus, Book II (Leiden: Brill, 1988), vol. 3, pp. 102–104.
