THE PAUSANIAS PROJECT (This website)
Welcome to the Pausanias-project, a site with over 2500 photo’s and maps, containing descriptions of classical and later Greece. The site is meant as a pictorial commentary to the Dutch translation of the antique “travelwriter” Pausanias (ca. 150 AD) by J. Abbenes, but can be used with all translations. The site is set up according to Pausanias’ division of Greece in 9 regions.
This site will be updated regularly. It is meant to cover eventually all places visited by Pausanias. Pages about the history of Greece will present a global view of Greece áfter Pausanias.
About Jelle Abbenes
Since 1980 I have spent most of my holiday’s in Greece. Over the last 7 years I have been researching all sites in Greece which are described in Pausanias’ description of Greece. At the same time I have made the first complete translation of Pausanias in Dutch.
