about

This is a study of the writings of Pausanias, a native of Asia Minor who chronicled his extensive travels in Greece in the second century AD. The greater part comprises the first detailed examination of Pausanias' view of Roman involvement in Greece and his attitude to the Roman emperors, especially Augustus, Nero and Hadrian. Pausanias' approach to the art and artists of the pre-Roman past of Greece is also considered. The book begins with a discussion of the historical, political and cultural background to Pausanias' work.
