Title
Athens with Piraeus
Description
English: This lovely little map or city plan of Athens and Environs in Ancient Greece, was prepared by M. Barbie de Bocage in 1784 for the “Travels of Anarcharsis”. Athens, capital of the Athenian Empire, was the heart of Ancient Greek culture and the quintessential Ancient Greek city state. It was here that Greek philosophy and literature as well as the concept of democracy first evolved. This plan of Athens, based on excavations and ancient sources offers impressive and accurate detail. Includes the Long Walls, build to protect merchants as they passed from Athens to the port city of Piraeus. Also includes the Academy of Plato.
