Pseudo-Skylax's Periplous

Graham Shipley

Liverpool University Press

This section of the book contains the ancient Greek text of the Periplous. Where there are lacuna in the manuscript is indicated. The text describes place and people encountered on a coastal journey. It also states journey times and measurements (stades), along with notable features of geography and communities. Pseudo-Skylax divides his text between the three continents—Europe, Asia and Libyē—marking the end of each with a summative sailing distance. With its relatively limited vocabulary and simple, yet varied, syntax, it will provide a useful text for those moving beyond the elementary study of ancient Greek language.

Keywords:   Ancient Greek, Coastal, Journey, Stade, communities
