Description

Pausanias, the Greek historian and traveler, lived and wrote around the second century AD, during the period when Greece had fallen peacefully to the Roman Empire. While fragments from this period abound, Pausanias' Periegesis ("description") of Greece is the only fully preserved text of travel writing to have survived. This collection uses Pausanias as a multifaceted lens yielding indispensable information about the cultural world of Roman Greece.show more

Review quote

"The stimulating, thoughtful, and well-written essays of this volume will inspire still further work on Pausanias.... For anyone undertaking such work this book will be essential background reading, and it will also be rewarding reading for anyone interested in the era of the Second Sophistic and in the reception of antiquity in the modern age."-Bryn Mawr Classical Reviewshow more
