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.
