Vienna in Austria,
Larissa in Thessalia.
HAVING paired the Winter in the Imperial City of
VIENNA, I took a Journey into Hungary , to view
the Copper, Silver ? and Gold Mines in those Parts^
And not long after, although I had already had a fair
sight of It alyl made a Journey unto VENICE, palling
through Auftria,Styria, Carinthia, Carniola, and Friuli;
and soon after my return to Vienna, I met with an opportunity, which
carried me unto the Ottoman Court, which then , and a long time be-

Dutch Altenburg, and Sr. Petronell.
I had been formerly at Petronell, to inform my self in the noble
Ruines and Antiquities thereof; where I met with variety of Medals,
Inscriptions, remainders os a noble Aquteduft , and the Remains of a
goodly Fabrick, which I thought might be the ruine of a Temple
of Janus, but it is conceived to have been a Triumphal Arch, ereded
in Memory of a great Vidory over the Pannonians, and Dalmatians,
by Tiberias, in the Ninth year of our Lord. My noble Friend, Petrus
