Σελίδα 134 - Greeks seem generally to have considered as the most advantageous, viz. a triangle on the slope of a pyramidal hill, bordered on either side by a torrent flowing in a deep ravine, having a summit convenient for the Acropolis. At Vlokho the ground is formed by nature for an oval Acropolis.
Σελίδα 243 - The river in the pass is deep and rapid, and is seen at the bottom falling in many places in cascades over the rocks, though at too great a distance to be heard, and in most places inaccessible to any but the foot of a goat or a Suliot.
Σελίδα 119 - Pleuron. At the foot of the mountain, on the edge of the plain of Mesolonghi, as well as on a small height in that plain called Ohyfto Kastro, some pieces of Hellenic wall mark the site of the still earlier Pleuron.
Σελίδα 242 - ... tamarisks fringe the margin of the winding river. Otherwise the plain is mostly treeless. On its eastern side rise, like a huge grey wall, the wild and barren mountains of Suli. Before entering the plain, on its passage from these rugged highlands, the Acheron flows through a profound and gloomy gorge, one of the darkest and deepest of the glens of Greece. On either side precipices rise sheer from the water's edge to a height of hundreds of feet, their ledges and crannies tufted with dwarf oaks...
Σελίδα 243 - On either side rise perpendicular rocks, in the midst of which are little intervals of scanty soil, bearing holly, ilices, and other shrubs, and which admit occasionally a view of the higher summits of the two mountains, covered with oaks, and at the summit of all with pines. Here the road is passable only on foot, by a perilous ledge along the side of the mountain...
Σελίδα 101 - Talia fundebat lacrimans longosque ciebat Incassum fletus, quum sese a moenibus heros 345 Priamides multis Helenus comitantibus afFert, Agnoscitque suos, laetusque ad limina ducit, Et multum lacrimas verba inter singula fundit. Procedo, et parvam Trojam simulataque magnis Pergama et arentem Xanthi cognomine rivum 350 Agnosco, Scaeaeque amplector limina portae.
Σελίδα 188 - Mazoma, separated from the Ambracian Gulf only by a narrow thread of land, which is a mile long, and has openings, where the fish are caught in great numbers as they enter the lagoon in the winter, and quit it in the summer. The whole surface of the narrowest part of the isthmus is covered with remains of ancient tombs, baths, walls, etc.
Σελίδα 101 - ... sollemnis cum forte dapes et tristia dona ante urbem in luco falsi Simoentis ad undam libabat cineri Andromache, Manisque vocabat Hectoreum ad tumulum, viridi quem caespite inanem et geminas, causam lacrimis, sacraverat aras.
Σελίδα 241 - Heber," continually exposing themselves to the fire of the enemy, supplying the men with water, ammunition, and provisions, and, when not otherwise employed, discharging volleys of abuse against the infidels. The hero of the closing scene of the defence was Samuel the Caloyer, a monk surnamed " The Last Judgment" ('H Te\evraia Kpi'tne), and who had been one of the bravest leaders of the Suliotes during the war.
Σελίδα 136 - ... course, obvious that we could not attribute the walls to the period in which what I have called 'opportunism' again prevailed, the opportunism of a decaying, as opposed to that of a growing, art. 1 Cf. Leake, NG i. 135 : ' The only remains of a public edifice within the walls of this capital ... is a square pyramidal shapeless mass of stones, on a line with the cottages of upper Vlokho, near the western wall. I inquired in vain for medals, or other remains of antiquity.
