Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: ...(vi. 49 fin.), that the Athenians, while besieging Syracuse, should form a vavtrradpov at Megara, about twelve miles off. There is indeed no harbour at Malea, but not far off there is a land-locked gulf (now Port Iero), which runs up towards the centre of the island within two miles from Mitylene. We can hardly suppose that the Athenian fleet would have failed to make use of this harbour. Thucydides does not mention it: may we not infer that he was imperfectly acquainted with the geography of the country? 4. 6.
