THE ATHENIAN PNYX.

233

III.

The literature on this subject, though not extensive, is widely
scattered. The ruin on the Pnyx Hill naturally attracted the atten-
tion of travellers, and every one who described his travels had some-
thing to say of it. Many of these descriptions, however, contain
mere repetitions of what others had already said, and possess no
scientific value. The following list is a sufficiently complete enumer-
ation :

Levant. Lyon, 167S; La Haye, 1724.
