Written in the second century AD by a Greek traveler for a predominantly Roman audience, Pausanias' "Guide to Greece" is an extraordinarily literate and well-informed guidebook. A study of buildings, traditions and myth, it describes with precision and eloquence the glory of classical Greece shortly before its ultimate decline in the third century. This volume, the first of two, concerns the five provinces of central Greece, with an account of cities including Athens, Corinth and Thebes and a compelling depiction of the Oracle at Delphi. Along the way, Pausanias recounts Greek legends that are unknown from any other source and quotes a wealth of classical literature and poetry that would otherwise have been lost. An inspiration to Byron and Shelley, the "Guide to Greece" remains one of the most influential travel books ever written

JACKET -- PLUTARCH (Plutarchus, c. A.D. 45-120), was born at Chaeronea in Boeotia in central Greece, studied philosophy at Athens, and, after coming to Rome as a teacher in philosophy, was given consular rank by the emperor Trajan and a procuratorship in Greece by Hadrian. Married and father of one daughter and four sons, he appears as a man of kindly character and independent thought. Studious and learned, he wrote on many subjects. Most popular have always been the 46 Parallel Lives, biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs (in each pair one Greek person and one similar Roman), though the last four lives are single. All are invaluable sources of our knowledge of the lives and characters of Greek and Roman statesmen or soldiers or orators. Plutarch's many other varied extant works about 60 in number, are known as 'Moral Essays' or 'Moral Works'. They are of high literary value, besides being of great use to people interested in philosophy, ethics and religion
