Pseudo-Skylax on the Peloponnese

By D. Graham J. Shipley


In this paper I take the opportunity to celebrate the work of our honorands, both of whom are distinguished in\ud Peloponnesian studies, by focusing on a description of the Peloponnese in a somewhat neglected work of fourthcentury BC geography. This distinctive passage, rather different in character from much of the work in question, bearsre-examination in the light of recent historical and archaeological advances as well as changing fashions in textual criticism
