This is an attractive 1791 map of ancient Athens, Greece. Covering the walled center of ancient Athens, this map details the ancient city's most important buildings and monuments. Names the Lyceum (Aristotle's famous school of philosophy) and the Cynosarges (Public gymnasium) as well as the Forum, the Citadel, the Temple of Theseus, and the Areopagus. Prepared by Barbie de Bocage for publication in the atlas volume attached to Jean Jacques Barthelemy's 1788 Travels of Anacharsis. Anacharsis was a Scythian philosopher who travelled from his homeland on the northern shores of the Black Sea to Athens in the early 6th century BCe. Apparently he made a great impression on the Greeks, who considered him a forthright, outspoken 'barbarian. He is considered a forerunner of the Cynics.
