Cities and Battles in Ancient Greece

Welcome to the home page for the Greece section of Travels Through Greco-Roman Antiquity!  The inspiration for this part of the project is Falvey Library's Special Collections work The Travels of Anacharsis the Younger in Greece by Jean Jacques Barthelemy.  This work, published in 1806, is a fourth edition English translation of the original French work and consists of seven volumes as well as an additional volume for illustrations, maps, etc.  The topic of the work is the imaginary journey of Anacharsis throughout Greece in the fourth century B.C.E.
