The Neuri are certainly in my Herodotus, the juiciest bit in book
four, just before the Amazons: "there is a story current amongst the
Scythians and the Greeks in Scythia that once a year every Neuria
turns into a wolf for a few days, then turns back into a man again"
(around section 105 I guess).  And just before that is a neat bit about
the Neurians being run out of their own country by an invasion of snakes.
