Rich Man and Poor Man Story?

Post  ChrisWAldridge on Wed Mar 23, 2016 1:37 pm

I remember hearing of a story involving Apollon, where He was asked if He liked the offerings of the rich man or the poor man better. Apollon replied by saying that He valued the man more who simply tossed barely upon His altar, more than the rich man who could bring Him mountains of gifts. Is this true, and if so, where can I find the story? What's it called?

I am not sure, although I think I have before in the Histories of Herodotus (book 1 or 2).
