الصفحة 508 - But no trace of any inner chamber or enclosure has been discovered in the great Hall of Initiation. It may therefore be suggested that the anaktoron or megaron was perhaps nothing but the body of the hall, which may have been screened by curtains from the spectators sitting in darkness on the tiers of seats that ran all round it, till suddenly the curtain rose and revealed the vast hall brilliantly illuminated, with the gorgeously attired actors in the sacred drama moving mazily in solemn procession...

الصفحة 407 - The present remains are interesting and extensive. The city, which was of an irregular form, was surrounded by a wall with square projecting towers, and apparently about two miles and a half in circuit. The Acropolis was on a pointed hill above the city. The ruins are all of white marble of an inferior kind, veined with gray. It was cut on the spot, as the rocks are of the same materials. The grain is close, but does not sparkle like most of the Grecian marbles, and is moreover of a brittle and decomposing...
الصفحة 21 - ... the streets and to promenade in the cool, lofty, and dimly-lighted arcade, often stopping to gaze with idle curiosity or patriotic pride at the long array of well-ordered tackle which spoke of the naval supremacy of Athens. Before we quit the war-harbours we should note the Choma, as it was called, a quay near the mouth of the harbour on which, when an armament was fitting out for sea, the Council of the Five Hundred held their sittings daily till the squadron sailed.
