Excerpt from book: BOOK SECOND CORINTH With the Second Book Pausanias opens his description of Peloponnese, to which he has devoted six out of his ten books. Beginning with Argolis he takes the five maritime divisions or provinces of Peloponnese (namely Argolis, Laconia, Messenia, Elis, and Achaia) in topographical order, and finishes with the central and inland province of Arcadia. Each province has a book to itself except Elis, which has two. The present book, though it takes its name (Corinthiaca) from Corinth, deals in fact -with the whole of Argolis, of which the territory of Corinth formed only a small part. Of modern works which treat specially of the geography and topography of Peloponnese the following are the most important: W. Cell, The Itinerary of Greece (London, 181o) (in spite of its pretentious title this work contains little more than an itinerary of Argolis); id., Itinerary of the Morea (London, 1817); id., Narrative of a journey in the Morea (London, 1823); W. M. Leake, Travels in the Morea, in three volumes (London, 183o); id., Peloponnesiaca (London, 1846); M. E. Puillon Boblaye, Eecherches geographiques sur les ruines de la Moree (Paris, 1835) (forms part of the large work Expedition scientifique de Morie); L. Ross, Reisen und Eeiserouten durch Griechenland, Erster Theil: Reisen im Peloponnes (Berlin, 1841); E. Curtius, Peloponnesos, in two volumes (Gotha, 1851-52); E. Beule, Etudes sur le Piloponnise; W. G. Clark, Peloponnesus (London, 1858); A. Philippson, Der Peloponnes. Versuch einer Landes- hunde auf geologischen Grundlage (Berlin, 1892) (treats of the physical and especially the geological configuration of the country). Argolis is the subject of a monograph by A.
